Arkansas Unemployment Application
To activate your unemployment claim, you must first complete an “Application For Unemployment Benefits” which can be obtained from your local Department of Workforce Services office. This is necessary when you are filling a new claim or re-activating an existing one. Delays in filing this form could cause benefits not to be paid for weeks prior to the filing date of the claim.
A claim for Unemployment Insurance may be filed in person at any Department of Workforce Services office or on forms for filing claims by mail, which have been placed in most public buildings.
