Kentucky Unemployment Benefits

In an average month, the Office of Employment and Training provides unemployment insurance benefits to 30,000 Kentuckians who are unemployed through no fault of their own. 

Unemployment insurance benefits sustain families when their breadwinners are between jobs.

Unemployment insurance benefits also have an economic impact on the commonwealth with the monthly infusion of $51.5 million into Kentucky’s communities.

To apply for unemployment insurance, visit a local office of the
Office of Employment and Training.

When you apply, please bring a photo ID and a social security card.

If you are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits, a formula will be used to determine the amount of your weekly check.  Effective July 1, 2006, checks must be at least $39 and no more than $401.
