Frankfort, KY – Kentucky workforce development officials say they will accept claims for extended unemployment benefits. The Extended Benefits program provides up to 20 additional weeks of federally-funded unemployment insurance to workers who have exhausted state and federal emergency extensions. The Office of Employment and Training begins notifying eligible individuals in the next few weeks by mail. For more on the Extended Benefits program visit the OET's website.
