In Arizona, unemployment insurance benefits do not allow for retroactive payments so you should apply as soon as you lose your employment (your last day of work).
Get unemployment benefits in Arizona if you have been laid off or fired from a job. The state provides unemployment benefits as a way to help those who lose their jobs find new employment. If you lose your job through no fault of your own (for example, because of a change in company policy) then you have the option of applying for benefits at any time from three months to six years after your layoff, provided you provide certain information to the state.
