According to State Arizona Unemployment Insurance you can claim the minimum benefit of $60 per week and maximum up to $240 per week.

For calculating your unemployment benefit you need to know the base period first. Usually base period will be the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters prior to the date you first applied for unemployment benefit.

The 1st quarter is January, February and March

The 2nd quarter is April, May and June

The 3rd quarter is July, August and September

The 4th quarter is October, November and December

  • To calculate your base period, first determine the quarter in which you filed your initial claim.
  • If you filed your initial claim in the 1st quarter of 2012 your Base Period is the 4th quarter of 2010 through the 3rd quarter of 2011.
  • If you filed your initial claim in the 2nd quarter of 2012 your Base Period is the 1st quarter of 2011 through the 4th quarter of 2011.
  • If you filed your initial claim in the 3rd quarter of 2012 your Base Period is the 2nd quarter of 2011 through the 1st quarter of 2012.
  • If you filed your initial claim in the 4th quarter of 2012 your Base Period is the 3rd quarter of 2011 through the 2nd quarter of 2012.
  • Your new claim's benefit amount will be based on where you worked during this 12-month period.
