The following information is required to file a new application for regular UI benefits or to file an additional UI claim (an additional claim is filed when you have a benefit year that has not yet expired, you found a job that has now ended and have become unemployed again).

Please note that this same online system is used to reopen an existing claim.  Meaning: you have a benefit year that has not yet expired, you stopped filing weekly claims for reasons other than returning to work and you now wish to begin filing for weekly benefits again. 

  • Your Social Security Number.
  • AZ Driver's License or AZ State Issued ID (Note: you may still complete your application without these two items). 
  • 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.
  • If you received severance, vacation, holiday or payment for unused sick pay: give the amount (before deductions) and the date it was paid to you.
  • The name and local number of your union hall, if applicable.
  • Alien Registration Number, if applicable.
  • Copy # 4 of your DD Form 214 if released from the military in the last 18 months.
  • SF 8 or SF 50 if employed in Federal Civilian service in the last 18 months.
  • If you are collecting a pension (other than Social Security), you will need the start date of the pension and the monthly benefit amount.
