Not yet. Right now, JIC was created to handle Michigan’s specific and complicated interest rates which change every 6 months.

Which accounting formula do you use to calculate the interest?

We use the future value formula; Fv = P (1 + int)^(days/365); This formula has the interest compounding annually, as required by Michigan MCL 600.6013.

The J.I.C. can accurately calculate the interest for any judgment starting Jan 1st, 1987 or later. The State of Michigan does not provide interest rates earlier than that and the laws for calculating interest are different for judgments prior to 1987.

How often is the interest information updated?

Twice a year, when the State of Michigan releases the interest rate for the following 6-month period. To view the latest interest rates, go to the Interest tab/page within the application.
