MiWAM Login:- To help you connect your unemployment account to your Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) or your jobseeker account to Pure Michigan Talent Connect (PMTC), The Department of Labour and Economic Opportunity has brought you a new single MILogin account. To successfully access your MiWAM account, you need to have a MILogin account.
Michigan’s unemployment insurance agency has introduced a new login process to make access easier for new and existing users of MiWAM and PTMC. In addition, it has become mandatory to get your unemployment claims.
The new MiWAM login portal has made it easier for Michigan residents to contact Michigan’s department dealing with unemployment claims. This new login process is not only for people searching for employment but also for employers. The MiWAM employer login lets the employers looking for workers amidst the crisis find a qualified workforce.
