      Please no that we are not a govt sponsored organisation and do not have access to specific claims.

    I live in KY but work in WV. I work for a title company but with this season it has been very slow, they are looking at laying off in our office. How long do I have to work for a company full time to claim an unemployment check? I would not need insurance due to being on my husbands. How would i go about applying?

    • Adrian says:

      The state labor departments usually consider 4 out of the last 5 calender quarters for income.You can apply online or via phone in Kentucky.
