Michigan's Extedned Unemployment Insurance Benefits (Tier II / Tier 2)
If you're one of the many people unemployed in the state of Michigan, you may be eligible for extended unemployment insurance benefits.
The Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program includes up to 20 weeks of federally-funded extended unemployment benefits in all states, and because of Michigan's high unemployment rate, a second tier of EUC, providing up to an additional 13 weeks of benefits, are payable in the state. Thus, Michigan's unemployed workers may receive up to 33 weeks of federally-funded EUC assistance.
