LISTEN UP TUCSON!
Many Arizonans who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic received their weekly compensation payments on Monday, only to find they were $600 short.
For many, this is no small chunk of change. It is the difference between buying groceries, paying bills, or making essential purchases.
“DES is aware that there are claimants who filed weekly certifications recently that did not receive the additional $600 weekly Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation payment benefit. We sincerely apologize and are working to correct this as quickly as possible. We will provide an update as soon as we have an estimated date of payment for these claims.”
