Michigan is changing how it’s letting residents sign up for unemployment benefits, in an effort to help the bogged-down system.
It’s telling out-of-work Michiganders to sign up on certain days based on their last names.
Online, those with last names beginning with letters A through L are asked to file claims on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays, while everyone else should use Sundays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays. Saturdays will be for those who could not file during their allotted window.
For those CALLING in, last names A through L are asked to call on Mondays and Wednesdays while everyone else should call on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All calls should be made between 8am and 5pm. Fridays will be for those who could not file during their allotted window.
