Current Minimum and Maximum Benefit Amounts in Arizona
In Arizona, the minimum benefit is $156 per week, and the maximum benefit is $240 per week. To make sure these amounts are still current when you apply for benefits, contact the Arizona Department of Economic Security.
Each state determines how much it will pay in unemployment benefits. Generally, the weekly benefit amount is some fraction or percentage of your earnings in the base period or your highest paid quarter of the base period.
To find out how much you will receive per week in Arizona, use your earnings during the highest paid quarter of the base period to look up your weekly benefit amount in the chart at Calculating Your Weekly Unemployment Insurance Benefit Amount.
Each state also sets a minimum and maximum weekly benefit amount. You may not receive less than the minimum, nor more than the maximum, no matter what the state's formula for calculating benefits would otherwise dictate. These amounts are often based on a number that changes from time to time, such as the state's minimum wage or the state's average wage.
