LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Kentucky leaders rolled out a new schedule for those applying for unemployment insurance benefits on Friday.

There has been a large increase in claims since new operating restrictions were placed on bars, restaurants, gyms, spas and salons.

The schedule of what day you can file a claim goes by the first letter in your last name.

Those whose last names begin with A, B, C, or D can file Sunday. The schedule goes through the week alphabetically. To view the schedule click here.

Anyone who missed the day that corresponds with their name can file the next Friday.

Kentucky Career Centers are closed but employees are still staffing phone lines. People can call the office closest to them for assistance.
