The University of Kentucky Human Resources Unemployment Department (HR UE) is responsible for responding to claims, attending hearings as required, and providing other services related to unemployment. Unemployment benefits are for employees who have experienced loss of work due to work not available or reduction in force.

HR Unemployment Office Assistance
The Kentucky Unemployment Office website and call number above are subject to much heavier traffic than usual. HR Unemployment is available to help answer general unemployment questions. HR Unemployment does not decide if benefits are paid.
Other Benefits for Families in Crisis
Everyone who applies for unemployment benefits should explore all options available to help themselves and their families.
Visit the Team Kentucky Fund Financial Assistance Application Portal to apply for help. Note: This is a Commonwealth of Kentucky program, not a University of Kentucky program.
For Managers and Supervisors
We will contact managers and supervisors if additional information is needed. If managers or supervisors receive inquires, please refer callers to our department.
