The Department of Economic Security can provide individuals who have lost their job through no fault of their own with a weekly stipend. Detailed information about Arizona Unemployment Benefits can be found by visiting www.AZUIO.com.
The Arizona Department of Economic Security is monitoring potential changes in federal and state laws and regulations, which may impact funding, eligibility and requirements for unemployment insurance. If changes are enacted, DES will update its program requirements as soon as possible.

Changes To Food Assistance Program
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides a monthly benefit provided to low-income families to help purchase nutritious foods and meet their basic needs, while on the path to self-sufficiency. The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) requested permission from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service to adjust program requirements to expand Nutrition Assistance benefits, and increase access to households by removing barriers to needed public assistance.
