Can I Receive Benefits If I Quit My Job?

Generally, you must meet certain requirements to be eligible. You must be able to work, available for work, willing to accept suitable work, actively seeking full­time work, and be out of work through no fault of your own. If you voluntarily quit your job, the burden of proof is on you to show that you quit for a good cause. If you are terminated or discharged, your employer must show that you were terminated for a work­connected misconduct as specified in the Arizona UI Law.
