First of all, the State Compensation Fund has nothing to do with unemployment benefits. It is a worker compensation insurance carrier.
If your LLC paid unemployment insurance premiums into the Department of Economic Security, and if you took a salary from the LLC for work performed when it was operating, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits, assuming the loss of your active employment with the LLC was not voluntary on your part. If your LLC income was always K-1 income, then you were never a wage earner and haven't lost your employment, so you would not be eligible. For more information on unemployment benefits, go to www.azdes.gov
