Registration with the Arizona Employment Service is required to continue receiving Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits. This registration process has been incorporated into the UI Benefits online initial claim application.
No additional action is required from you unless you previously registered through the AZ Job Connection (or Virtual One Stop System/VOS) online system and identifying information entered on your application for UI benefits does not match their records.You will be notified by the Department (by postal mail) of the necessary steps you will be required to complete to successfully register. If you do not complete the steps to fulfill the Employment Service registration requirement within the allotted time period, benefit payments will be held up or denied.
In addition to Employment Service registration, the AZ Job Connection offers a full range of features and services to assist you in your employment needs including researching the job market, analyzing your career, and more.
