A spokeswoman with Michigan's Unemployment Insurance Agency says crews have repaired it's online and phone based services.
Thousands of people use the phone-based MARVIN (Michigan Automated Response Voice Interactive Network) and Michigan Web Account Manager to file and maintain their unemployment benefits. On Wednesday morning, the state says the services were temporarily disabled. Technical crews worked on the system for most of the day. At around 2:20 Wednesday afternoon, they were back up and running.
Spokeswoman Linda Robinson says the outage could mean a slight delay for people expecting unemployment benefit payments.
