This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB program for Kentucky.
The following changes has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the States' EB status:
Based on the data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on August 21, 2020, the seasonally-adjusted total unemployment rate for Kentucky fell below the 8.0% threshold necessary to remain “on” a high unemployment period in EB, and effective September 13, 2020, the maximum potential entitlement for claimants in Kentucky in the EB program will decrease from 20 weeks to 13 weeks.
The trigger notice covering state eligibility for the EB program can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims_arch.as.
Information for Claimants
The duration of benefits payable in the EB program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970, as amended, and the operating instructions issued to the states by the U.S. Department of Labor. In the case of a state beginning an EB period, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice of potential entitlement to each individual who has exhausted all rights to regular benefits and is potentially eligible for EB (20 CFR 615.13(c)(1)).
Persons who believe they may be entitled to EB, or who wish to inquire about their rights under the program, should contact their State Workforce Agency.
