Overview of the Veterans Program
The primary objective of the Veterans Program is to develop and support programs that increase opportunities for veterans to obtain employment and job training in Arizona. Eligible veterans are entitled to receive priority services in job referrals and training by DES staff, as well as other employment-related services. As part of our services, we will provide Unemployment Insurance claimants with early intervention and immediate referrals to suitable job openings, including employment services customized to their job finding needs, such as job search workshops, job development, and screening for referrals to jobs, training or other support services. This will hasten the Unemployment Insurance claimant's re-entry into employment.
The DES Veterans Program fulfills the requirements of the Federal Wagner-Peyser Act of 1933 and Title 38, Chapters 41, 42 and 43 of the United States Code.
