State launches new resource for up-to-date unemployment information

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (April 16, 2020) – The Arkansas Division of Workforce Services (ADWS) today launched a new web site designed to provide updated information regarding COVID-19 related unemployment benefits.

ARunemployment.com is designed to be a memorable resource for people seeking answers to their questions regarding unemployment insurance claims. The site will include a link to the state’s EZARC website, through which claims can be filed. 

“We are continually working to improve our resources, processes and functionalities to best serve the people of Arkansas in an efficient manner,” said Dr. Charisse Childers, director of ADWS. “ARunemployment.com is easy to remember and will help eliminate confusion with its simple navigation.”

The site, which can be easily accessed on all mobile devices, will also serve as a resource for the media and others who are seeking up-to-date statistics for unemployment in Arkansas.  

Dr. Childers says that by the end of April, ADWS should have systems in place to begin processing unemployment assistance claims for self-employed Arkansans. In the meantime, ARunemployment.com provides a link for 1099-workers to share email addresses in order to receive weekly updates. To date, more than 7,000 people have submitted their email addresses.

“We encourage people filing claims or seeking updates on previously submitted claims to utilize our new web site or call 1-844-908-2178,” said Dr. Childers.

The Arkansas Division of Workforce Services is a state agency within the Arkansas Department of Commerce.
