Due to the State of Michigan’s lower unemployment rate, the U.S. Department of Labor notified the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency to confirm that the state’s Extended Benefits (EB) program will no longer be payable after the week ending April 17th.

Officials say the agency has begun notifying claimants currently receiving Extended Benefits to ensure they are aware. Extended Benefits are available when Michigan’s total unemployment rate averages 6.5% or higher for three consecutive months

Michigan has paid approximately $419 million since high unemployment rates triggered the Extended Benefits program.
