Kentucky Career Center

IN-PERSON UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE SERVICES ~

Employment and Unemployment Insurance (UI) in-person services are available at the Kentucky Career Centers located in Ashland and Morehead. Here are some things you need to know:

Only individuals with an appointment will have access to in-person UI services.
• You can schedule appointments at kcc.ky.gov.
• Appointments will fill up quickly. However, the appointments will be available on a rolling schedule so there will be new opportunities to schedule.
Masks are required. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you.
• Temperatures will be taken at the door prior to entrance. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher, exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, or has been in contact with a COVID positive person will need to reschedule for in-person and/or will be offered a virtual meeting at a later date.
The only person who can enter the building is the individual whose name is on the claim. We are not allowed to provide information to family and/or friends regarding the claim.  Due to limited space and COVID guidelines, family members and/or friends who accompany you to the meeting will be asked to wait in the vehicle.
You must have a valid government photo identification card (Driver’s License/Permit, State issued ID Card, Military ID, Passport) that you will present to staff prior to entering the building.
• Please arrive approximately 5 minutes prior to your appointment time. It is not necessary to arrive earlier as individuals will be called in the order of their appointments, and not in the order in which they arrive.  Individuals without appointments will not have access to in-person UI services.
• There are a significant number of jobs available in the local area.  Each individual will be given information regarding current job opportunities and how to apply.
