If you lost your job at no fault of your own, then it is important to file your claim right away. Unemployment Insurance benefits are not retroactive: therefore, you should apply for UI Benefits as soon as possible after the last day of work. If you are still currently working, you will need to wait until after your last day of work to complete your application for UI benefits. At the time of filing you will need information including your Social Security Number, Arizona Driver's License or Arizona State Issued ID, your mailing address, city, state and ZIP code. If you live in Arizona, know the county where you reside. The names, addresses, and phone numbers of all your employers for the last 18 months, the last day you worked immediately prior to filing your UI claim and more. To see if you are eligible to receive these benefits and what additional information is needed when applying, find out how to file your Arizona unemployment claim. As a reminder, unemployment insurance benefits are taxable. You must report any unemployment benefits you receive as part of your gross income on your taxes.
