PHOENIX -- The Arizona Department of Economic Security said payment of extended unemployment benefits may be delayed by about a week.

The department said it needs to make some computer programming changes as a result of the federal government's last-minute extension of emergency unemployment benefits.

Congress passed the legislation and President Barack Obama signed it this week.

DES said payments for the week ending Saturday may be delayed by up to seven business days as programming is completed and payments are generated.

The department said people exhausting benefits for the first 26 weeks of coverage should file for emergency extended benefits so those claims can be processed as quickly as possible.
