Who is MARVIN?
The staff of the Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) would like to introduce MARVIN. MARVIN got his name from the acronym for the M ichigan’s A utomated R esponse V oice I nteractive N etwork, a system that allows you to communicate with the UIA’s computer by using a touch-tone or a push-button telephone with a tone/pulse switch (the switch must be set at “Tone”). Rotary or pulse telephones cannot interact with MARVIN. MARVIN uses digitized human speech to provide you with step-by-step instructions and information regarding your claim.

In his short time here, MARVIN, as he is affectionately called by the staff and customers of the UIA, has become a household name in Michigan. MARVIN has been quickly accepted by both the staff and customers of the UIA as a friendly, fast, and efficient means for the UIA to deliver services.
