Unemployment Benefit Extensions
Important Information for All EB Recipients
The U.S. Department of Labor determined that Arizona no longer meets the federal requirements for the Extended Benefits (EB) program as of June 11, 2011. If you were receiving EB at that time, you were advised to continue filing weekly claims in the event the program might be continued. Legislation was not enacted, which means that no benefit payments will be made for EB claims filed for weeks that ended after June 11, 2011. Even if you had a balance remaining in your EB account, there are no additional benefits available.
