What is the power of the State of Michigan unemployment division to collect on restitution?
I came across your expertise in a web search for a friend. He was very belatedly denied unemployment in Michigan [not fraud on his part, hearings and Board reviews were a farce, in my own humble expertise gained in Nevada UE work...]. State is demanding $3600 he cannot pay; still has no job; sends them $10 money order every month as only effort he can make in good faith. Owns land and a home in his and his adult son's name. Can the State seize his real property at some point? He is sick with worry, can't afford attorney.
The state cannot seize his land, home or car. The state will take any future (within 5 years as I recall) Michigan income tax refund to which he may become entitled and 20% of any future unemployment benefits for which he may become eligible. Recently the UIA began charging 1% per month interest on money owed in restitution.
Will they just collect his $10 until he dies, or would it be written off at some point in time? If ever he is employed again, his goal is to pay and get rid of it, but at this time it looks very unlikely he will be able to do anything about it in the next 5 years or so. I appreciate your input, it's a terrible position he's in.
