In July, Governor Andy Beshear encouraged everyone who didn’t have a job to get one before September 6, the day unemployment claims stop.
The additional $300 dollar a week payment for self-employed workers and payment extensions ended Monday. That includes a stop on claims from the following programs:
Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), which provides an additional $300 weekly payment to recipients of unemployment compensation.
Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), which provides benefits for those who would not usually qualify, including the self-employed, gig workers and part-time workers.
Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), which provides an extension of benefits once regular benefits have been exhausted.
Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation (MEUC), which provides an additional $100 benefit to certain people with mixed earnings.
The Office of Unemployment Insurance said anyone who was owed money prior to September 6 will get it.
Kentuckians who are having difficulty paying rent and utilities can apply for help from the Team Kentucky Eviction Relief Fund.
Those who need help finding a job can contact the nearest Kentucky Career Center.
