Arizona Unemployment Office
The Arizona unemployment office, known as the Department of Economic Security (DES), handles unemployment insurance benefits in the state. Information about unemployment is important for AZ residents who lost working hours or a job. The AZ unemployment office maintains claims and helps claimants receive benefits, find work and re-educate residents to secure new work. Unemployment benefits are available to all residents who meet eligibility requirements. Such requirements include the amount of time worked with the previous employer, the reason for losing work or work hours and availability to accept new work opportunities. Compensation from the program is also available to military personnel recently discharged from service. DES provides unemployment information, including how and what you will need to claim benefits and information about the electronic payment card. The DES can provide interested applicants with AZ unemployment information including how to apply for unemployment compensation. The DES will also discuss existing claims and provide details regarding the amount and status of compensation. Residents should contact the unemployment office in Arizona in the event that full-time employment ends.
