Arkansas Unemployment Offices

 


Filing an Unemployment Insurance Claim in Arkansas

To file for Unemployment Insurance claims, forms are made available in most public buildings across the state of Arkansas. These forms can then be filed in person at any Department of Workforce Services office.

Whether you file online or by telephone, you must have the following information ready:

1. Your name & mailing address

2. Your Social Security Number

3. The name & address of your last employer

4. The last day you worked & the reason you are no longer working

 

The Arkansas Department of Workforce Services has initiated online and telephone systems for continuing weekly UI claims.

1. ArkLine (Arkansas’ Interactive Voice Response System) – by using your touch tone telephone, you will enjoy a speedy process in filing your weekly benefits claims. Updated information and other relevant queries that may arise at any time can also be provided by the call center agent. You may reach ArkLine through 1-507-907-2590.

2. ArkNet (Arkansas Internet Continued Claims System)- if you are much more into website processing, you may also access ArkNet. It is the web-based continued claims system for Unemployment Insurance claims through the Internet. To register right now go www.arknet.arkansas.gov.

Eligibility Requirements for Unemployment Insurance Claims in Arkansas

As mentioned above, UI claims have to be filed at any Department of Workforce Services local office nearest your area of residence. In order to be eligible for weekly claims, you must meet all of the following criteria as shown on the state’s official labor website (www.dws.arkansas.gov). You must be:

1. Unemployed,

2. Physically and mentally able to perform suitable work,

3. Available for suitable work,

4. Making a reasonable effort to find work,

5. Free of participation or direct interest in a labor dispute, and

6. Free of disqualification

There is a waiting period of one week before you enjoy any benefits after your application. The waiting period simply means that the said one week is the period in which you are officially unemployed and you did not have nor had any income less than 140% of your weekly benefit amount. Remember that you must also meet the eligibility requirements mentioned above, and above all you are not disqualified from receiving any claims.
