MILogin, the sign-on portal used to access critical state services , will be unavailable Friday evening for maintenance and upgrades.

The system will be unavailable beginning at 11 p.m. on Friday, April 3, until 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 4.

Many state applications like Michigan Web Account Manager for unemployment benefits and MI Bridges to apply for food assistance utilize MILogin.

State officials say before March, the average number of hourly transactions were 5,000. Last week, MILogin processed about 38,000 transactions per hour. Officials say a critical upgrade is needed in order to meet current and future expected demand.
