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

The department says 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 says 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 says 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.
