Any time your unemployment status changes, the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training sends a notice in the mail alerting you of the change. This helps you keep on top of any changes in your claim, including your payments. However, you can also access the OET’s claims system to view the status of your claim, including your pending payments and the balance of your claim. You can find out by Internet or phone system.
