NEW The Department has received information about several email scams. Protecting our personal information is a concern for all of us. Emails from the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program will always have “@azdes.gov” as part of the sender’s address on the “From” line. A way to check to make sure that the message is in fact coming from UI is to hover your mouse pointer over the sender’s email address in the “From” line. If you see anything other than what was previously described ([email protected]), do not click on any links in the email body or respond. The subjects of these bogus, phishing emails does not relate to your UI claim. One offered affordable car insurance and another wanted information to sign the individual up for an “email buddy list”.
Keep us informed of your current address! State law requires that you keep the department informed of your current mailing address. To change your personal information (name, address or phone), download and complete our Name and Address Change Request (45 KB PDF) form and mail it to the address at the top of the form. For tax purposes, please keep your address and personal information up to date even if you are not currently filing claims.
