Unemployment System Slowdown

Governor Andy Beshear acknowledged the state is taking much longer than it should to process unemployment claims yet, he says the state is working hard to get through the sheer volume of claims left.“One thing that we are slower than we should be to do is to purge the fraudulent claims, the ones that when you reach out, you can never get a response and the documents are never uploaded or the rest,” Gov. Beshear said.State Auditor Mike Harmon, who’s running for governor, conducted audits the unemployment claim process last year. He said the initial autopay system created chaos. He noted several employed state workers even received money when they shouldn’t have.
