MI: Can I resume unemployment benefits after completing a temporary self-employed position?
I currently have an accepted claim in MI, but I accepted a TEMPORARY self employed position. Will I have trouble resuming my unemployment benefit payment once I am finished with this temp position? The temp position is 3-5 months in length.
I don’t know. You didn’t say when your benefit year started or when it will end.
If your benefit years ends before the temporary self employment does, you would have to file a new claim at that time.
Different claim, different base period, and very possibly a different benefit amount since the temporary job is self employment.
In Michigan, if a person isn’t able to monetarily qualify for unemployment with the standard base period, they will then look at the alternative base period which is the last four completed quarters.
