How Do I Verify My Unemployment Claim Has Been Accepted in Kentucky?

When you file your unemployment claim in Kentucky, the information you enter must be verified before it is processed and accepted. This is true for both your initial unemployment claim and your weekly, or bi-weekly, claims for benefits. Regardless of which claim you have filed, you may be anxious to know if a check is on the way. Fortunately, you can check the status of your claim to see if it has been accepted by the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training.

Wait for at least 10 days to see if you receive any correspondence by mail. It can take the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training up to this long to process your unemployment claim. Once they do, you will receive correspondence by mail.

Call or visit your local office location. The Kentucky Office of Employment and Training website has a map with all of the office locations listed. Once you contact your local office, you can inquire on the status of the claim.

Use the Telephone Claim Filing Center to find out if your claim has been accepted. Call (502) 875-0442 Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. EST.

Email for a status update through the contact form on the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training. It is not a secure form, so do not give your Social Security number or any other sensitive information on the form.
