The Commonwealth on alert after a data breach in the state's unemployment system.

Governor Andy Beshear says the hack was a minor one and did not reveal the social security numbers of those receiving benefits.

The Governor revealed that employer information and health status for a handful of Kentuckians was accessed.

Beshear added "We do not think that there is a threat to anyone's credit or financial information, at all. But our challenge is this system was put in, in 2000."

The Governor is calling for future investments in state infrastructure.

If you still need help solving your unemployment claim information, there are in-person appointments available in Louisville next week.
