In-person unemployment services at over 12 regional Kentucky Career Centers began on Thursday.
In-person assistance was stopped in the fall of 2017 under the previous administration, but Gov. Beshear proposed a budget that allows the branch to help Kentuckians who have been impacted negatively by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Governor’s proposed budget included spending of $1.1 million this year and an additional $8.4 million in 2022 to provide funding to restore employees to help with unemployment claims at the career centers throughout the commonwealth.
Staff at the centers will be available to assist those needing help but you will need to schedule an appointment on the state's website.
