How to Cancel Kentucky Unemployment

When you find a new job you can no longer receive Kentucky unemployment benefits and may need to officially cancel your Kentucky unemployment.

In order to cancel your unemployment claim, you can:

1. Call, send a letter, or email to your unemployment counselor letting them know that you have found a new job.
2. Stop filing your weekly certification.

If you happen to receive an unemployment check while you are working, make sure to call your unemployment counselor to let them know. You may need to return the check - but this will be better than any possible penalties that you could be responsible for if you are found to be recieving unemployment benefits while working.

I started a new job last week after being laid off for 12 1/2 months. I took a 3.00 on the hour cut. The job doesn't look very promising. What happens if I am let go or quit ? Will I be eligable to continue drawing unemployment ?

You are only able to claim unemployment once every three years.

Technically the only way to qualify for unemployment benefits is to be laid off, meaning the company is cutting spending and it has nothing to do with your job performance. Even then, some companies will stil reject your claim, but in this case it can be easily appealed and will usually be accepted.

If you quit or are terminated for cause (poor job performance, insubordination , consistent absence or tardiness, etc.) you are NOT eligible for unemployment. You can file, and you can even appeal an employer's decision not to grant you unemployment benefits, but my understanding is that it almost never gets approved without an attorney and a very good reason for the appeal.

First of all, a $3 per hour cut isn't drastic. Second, if the possibility of quitting is even on your mind before starting the job, you need to ask yourself some questions. Looks like you exhausted extended benefits and that's going to be it unless you're laid off three years from now.
