    Once you receive your letter in the mail from UIA, you can call 866.500.0017 to update your payment method.

    UIA payments are issued by either a debit card (default) or direct deposit to your financial institution of choice (at your request). To set-up a direct deposit you will need to create a Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) and enter your direct deposit information under the Claimant Services tab, or call 1-866-500-0017 and select the payment option. You will need to have your financial Institution’s routing number and your account number readily available. If no option is selected, your method of payment will default to the debit card. If you have previously selected a method of payment, your option will remain the same.
