Unemployment Insurance Referral
(12/01/20 - 01/31/20)
Participants who have been employed in any state may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. Complete the following for participants who have worked in Arizona:
Review HOSC and see whether a UI claim has been filed. (See SVES)
Use the Information Request and Pending Information Agreement (FAA-0077A) form, the F011 or A011 notice to request the participant apply for UI.
Claims for UI benefits must be completed on-line, by phone or mail. (See Filing for UI Benefits)
Refer participants with a disability who have had employment in the previous two quarters on HOSC to UI for an eligibility determination.
Do not refer participants to UI that have no employment history on HOSC and who are unable to work. Verification that the participant is unable to work must be provided. Use the verification process to verify that the participant is unable to work.
HOSC must be checked before making a determination.
Referral for other benefits is not a requirement.
Refer participants who have worked out of state to the Arizona UI web site to file for Interstate UI. When the participant does not have internet, a One-Stop Center or DES Employment Service office resource center provides computer usage free of charge. (See Filing for UI Benefits)
