The hotline has received multiple reports from claimants in Arizona reporting they have not yet received their Unemployment Insurance payment this week.

One of the emails said:

"I put in my claim Sunday around 7:00pm last night, however I don't have a claim update or a payment update. Normally I get the updates by the next morning and get paid around noon Monday."

We called Arizona DES and spoke to a rep who said an issue in their system might cause up to a 48 hours delay. All payments should be processed and received by Wednesday, July 15th, 2020. will continue to monitor the situation and post updates on this page, so make sure to bookmark and come back to check the status of the situation.
