    This report presents findings from Mathematica’s behavioral insights study conducted for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment (REA) program in Michigan. This report presents our findings on the effects of emails designed to encourage UI claimants to (1) schedule and attend REA sessions with Michigan Works! Southwest and (2) persist in efforts that will help them succeed in their job search efforts following REA program completion. Key findings include:

    • Simple encouragement emails resulted in a 15 percentage point increase in Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants scheduling their first REA session.
    • There was a 14 percentage point increase in the number of UI claimants completing the REA program. (Edited author abstract)
