Q: My name is Danielle. I have a question about unemployment and needing representation for an appeal.

I stopped receiving benefits back in October because of trying to verify with id.me and it took 3 months to complete and then at which time I was informed that an adjudicator was assigned to my claim. I was found monetarily ineligible based on non fraud issue and disqualified. I submitted my documentation of proof of self employment and information regarding my last employer from 2011 but was unsuccessful finding the correct document( w2) to send in . The employer closed the business they are out of state and we're here under contract working fir the fort huachuca and Sunday corporation. I know that no matter if you have had employment or not or the lack of work history and employment you are eligible for the pandic benefit payment. I still don't understand.

A: I wanted to let you know your question was posted to a workers' compensation website, very different than unemployment benefits (UIB). I personally do not have an answer about your pandemic benefits claim and I don't know if you are eligible for some UIB payment even without having worked in many years - you may be thinking of the personal payment. I am not able to give you an answer, I am not aware of attorneys who accept unemployment or general pandemic benefits claims in Arizona, and you may want to resubmit your question more specifically about employment law if there is not a category for UIB.
