Unemployed Kentuckians will soon be getting some bonus unemployment aid back.
The State of Kentucky will be taking part in the federal government’s renewed unemployment benefits program. Governor Andy Beshear announced earlier this week that the state would use coronavirus aid from the federal government to meet their $100 contribution for the $400 weekly payout. Beshear said he expects the state’s application to the program to be accepted quickly, though the rollout could take several weeks due to computer software updates.
Those who qualify for the aid can expect the check in early September.
