Kentucky Unemployment Application

When you get ready to fill out the KY unemployment application you need to make sure you have set aside plenty of time to complete the application, and you need to be sure that you have all of the information ready that may be requested of you.

You need to know:

1. Your social security number.
2. Your driver's license number.
3. Your last employer's name and address.
4. The dates that you worked at your last employer.
5. The dates of all of the jobs that you have held in the past (This is not always required, but is very helpful to have).

If you are filling out a Kentucky unemployment application in person, you will need to take the following items with you:

1. Your social security card.
2. Your driver's license.
3. Last paystub from your previous employer.
4. Any layoff documents your previous employer may have given you.

I was told to put constructiely discharged when filing for unemployment but none of the reasons given afterward would be correct, & when asked do you want me to put quit instead, but I didn't? I love my job and I'm ready, willing and able to work as soon as the hostility of the work enviroment is resolved. The bullying, verbal harassment has been brought to my bosses attetion on several occations and as an employer I can only take so much, my boss agreed. So what do I mark when filing? -Thank you for any and all help you can provide me.

I was recently laid off from my job at a hospital. I have already signed up for unemployment. I will be eligible to go back in this coming Friday and try to bump back into my department. The only thing is, is by the time I am able to bid on a job (they go by seniority) all the full time jobs will be taken and I do not want to take a part time job. My question is, will I still be able to draw unemployment if I turn down a part time job?

I am moving out of state to take care of my sick mother. I have been applying for jobs for about 3 months now. Can I collect unemployment to help me with the move until I find employment?

I was let go under very strange circumstances I need to get this going as soon as possible as to not loose my home and to stay on top of my living expenses until such time I can find another job. I have already set up an appointment to check into going back to school, I will be doing that next week.

If one works in IN and lives in Louisville, do they apply at a KY office or have to go IN?
