Beshear Not Cutting UUI Benefits For Now

Gov. Andy Beshear says Kentucky will continue to pay the extra $300 in unemployment benefits supplied by the federal government under the recently-passed American Rescue Plan. A number of state governors have decided to end those payments because they feel claimants are choosing not to go back to work because they make more on unemployment. The federal benefits are funded until this fall and Beshear said he may consider cutting them out before that date.
