    Once applicants start receiving benefits each week. Claimants need to be aware of certain rules and regulations that come with unemployment insurance in Arizona. Applicants should also get a better understanding of the job-related services provided to applicants in the state of Arizona.

    Overpayments and Fraud

    Overpayments occur when claimants receive more benefits than the claimant is lawfully qualified to receive. When the Department of Economic Security Unemployment Insurance Administration determines an overpayment, the department mails a determination of overpayment. A determination of overpayment contains the following information:

    • Date of determination
    • Amount of overpayment
    • Cause of overpayment
    • Distribution of overpayment
    • How can applicants repay the overpayment
    • Appropriate methods the department can use to collect overpayments
    • Repayment plans available on overpayments
    • Claimant appeal rights
    • Date of collection of overpayments

    Overpayments can occur due to a number of reasons such as:

    • A department error usually occurs when the claimant submits information but the department fails to address it in an appropriate manner
    • The employer failed to submit requested or necessary information in a timely manner
    • The employer submits incorrect or inadequate information to the claimant or the department
    • One of the claimants base period employers provided a delinquent wage report which changed the number of benefits that the claimant is entitled to
    • An initial decision found the claimant eligible for benefits but later on an appeal decision turned the original decision
    • If the claimant unintentionally gave incorrect information he/she may receive overpayments

    Fraud occurs when a claimant knowingly misrepresents or conceals material facts in order to obtain benefits which he/she was not legally entitled to. If a claimant claims weekly benefits that they did not work or earn and in fact, the claimant did work and earned wages and failed to report it he/she is committing fraud.
    f a claimant states that he/she was separated from the last employer due to lack of work. If later on determined that he/she was discharged for disqualifying reasons he/she is committing fraud. The following policies apply if fraud is committed in the state of Arizona:

    • A penalty of 15% will be added to the overpayment amount
    • Claimants won’t be allowed to receive Unemployment Insurance benefits until the fraud overpayment, penalties, and the rate has been paid in full
    • A no waiver of repayment of overpayment will be issued
    • If any legal action is taken, the courts will decide the repayment plan
    • Interest will accrue on the unpaid balance beginning with the month following the month of overpayment
    • The collection starts once the overpayment becomes final
    • The department can refer the matter to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office for unlawful prosecution

    To repay the overpayment benefits system applicants can use DES Online Payment System and make payments with a valid, MasterCard, Discovery or American Express Credit Card, and Visa card. Claimants can also make payments using the telephone system dial 1 (844) 722-6247 or (602) 252-0024 and press option 1. You may also mail a money order or check payable to the Department of Economic Security on the address shown at the top of the determination of overpayment.

If you miss filing a claim in a certain week. You can file for the current week and the prior week which you missed. If you missed filing claims for two weeks the system does not recognize you. Failure to file the weekly claim may result in a delay in having any of your benefits approved or they may be a delay in receiving your weekly benefits amount.

If you receive a message stating no record of your social security number. This means the system is missing two or more of your most recent weekly claims. This means the two previous benefit weeks were not submitted for processing of payment in a timely way. You must get in touch with the UI call center to reactivate your claims.

Q. Are my benefits taxable?

Federal law states that UI benefits are reportable on your income tax returns. The internal revenue service provides detailed instructions for the completion of your returns. It is necessary for applicants to make estimated tax payments. Once the year ends the ADES sends a statement showing your total benefits paid.

To make sure you receive your statement, report any change of address, even if you stop filing for returns. Always provide your name, Social Security Number, and your new address. You can elect to have your federal and state income taxes deducted from your unemployment checks.

Q. What should I expect when filing for unemployment in Arizona?

  21. I have filed for U/I three seperate times and have been denied. The last two as a school bus driver i was let go due to a surgery, i had my (fmla)ran out and i was fired.Three months later i found employment at another school but never was awarded u/i. And now im on summer break and was denied again.I was told “school bus drivers are not qualifed for u/i” But i have friends at other school bus companies that receive it. Can someone explain this to me?

    1. Hi Tony,

      You must be able and available to work while collecting benefits, so I think the 1st time you were out for surgery, you were unable to work and hence were denied benefits. If you were fired for work related misconduct, then you will be denied benefits. Summer break is a seasonal holiday in your employment and hence you may have been denied benefits. Drivers sure receive benefits.

  22. Is anyone else having problems when trying to log into file your weekly claim? Its not letting me view or file. Gives an error message. Also, does anyone know when it will be fixed?

    1. Hi Jessica,

You cant even talk to anyone when you call. What am I supposed to do?

        1. Hi Jessica,

          This is indeed a big issue. We have couple of other users complaining about the site. It might help if you could visit the nearest unemployment office. It sure is an inconvenience, but should be able to help.

    1. Hi Rose,

      The state determines you eligibility to receive benefits not only on how long you worked, but also on how you lost your job and how much you earned during the base period. Your benefit amount amount is calculated based on your earnings in the base period (the period of employment). Generally at least 4 calendar quarters of employment is needed to receive benefits which means 12 months. However, your state may choose to provide unemployment benefits based on other alternate methods.
      Check for other eligibility requirements in your state before proceeding to apply.

  23. I was just just let go from my job at the home depot. How can I file and for how long will I get unemployment

    1. Hi Grayson,

      You have a possibility of receiving compensation as your seem to be not at fault for having lost the job. But, there is also a minimum earning requirement to be eligible. This is called monetary requirement. You will have to check if you have sufficient earnings in the base period under covered employment. You may be entitled to up to 26 weeks of state unemployment benefits

  24. Dear Sir,
    I am permanent resident of USA and live in AZ since oct 2012, since then I have been applying for jobs but iam still unemployed ,am I eligible for unemployment benefits. please let me know at the earliest as i have very less money left.I am trying my best to get a job , thank you

    1. You will be eligible if you make an active effort for work each week that you claim benefits.

      An active work search includes the usual methods of obtaining work that you are suited for by experience, education and/or training. An ample search for work is a sincere effort, and is not just an attempt to remain eligible for benefits.

      General inquiries and phone calls are considered basic explorations of the job market. These should be accompanied by suitable follow-ups, which may consist of personal visits and submission of applications and resumes.

      Arizona defines a systematic and sustained work search as making work search contacts on at least four days of the week. These contacts can be in person, by mail, or through the internet. Looking for work at your local Employment Service office can count as one of your contacts
