Waiting For Unemployment Benefits

Thousands of Kentuckians whose unemployment benefits expired the day after Christmas may wait weeks before seeing their next payment as the state switches over to the new benefits extension recently passed by the federal government.Despite the passing of the new coronavirus relief bill, which extended unemployment benefits for those laid off because of the pandemic until March, Kentucky officials must wait to receive guidelines from the federal government before it can begin issuing payments again, according to the state’s unemployment website.The lag in payments could impact around 88,000 Kentuckians.
