A claim for unemployment benefits in Arizona can be filed online at www.azui.com. You will be asked for your employment information including the names, addresses, and phone numbers for your employers and dates of employment.
To speed up the process, file your claim as soon as you become unemployed. You should be actively seeking employment and you must document your efforts by filing weekly claims even if you haven’t been approved yet for benefits.
The amount of your unemployment benefits may be affected if you have received severance or a payout for unused vacation time or sick leave from your employer. Even if you’ve received a severance package, you should still file for coverage as soon as you become unemployed.
More information, including contact information and hours, can be found at www.azui.com
