In-person unemployment appointments in Bowling Green will start April 15
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) -Gov. Andy Beshear and Labor Cabinet Secretary Larry L. Roberts announced Tuesday that in-person unemployment insurance (UI) services will open April 15 at more than a dozen regional Kentucky Career Centers (KCCs).
KCC staff will be available for in-person assistance by appointment only. At 12 p.m. CST on Wednesday, April 7, Kentuckians can begin scheduling Monday through Friday appointments at kcc.ky.gov.
Openings on Wednesday will be for appointments from April 15 through the 30.
Beginning April 19, appointments for May 3 will become available, with additional appointment times opening each day thereafter.
“When you combine years of painful staffing cuts, an out-of-date system designed to tell people no and the effects of a once-in-100-years pandemic – many Kentuckians have been unable to obtain benefits,” Gov. Beshear said. “In addition to taking many new actions to help Kentuckians in need, we are now making good on our promise to begin putting unemployment specialists back into the local career centers.”
Labor Secretary Roberts said the Kentucky Career Center staff is working diligently to prepare for opening day.
“It has taken a lot of work to make it happen in a short window of time, but our staff has worked hard in recent weeks to pull everything together to get us in a position to once again provide services that unemployment claimants need at this critical time,” Roberts said.
