Deadlines loom to apply for disaster unemployment aid

The deadlines to apply for disaster unemployment assistance in six Kentucky counties hit hard in severe July storms are fast approaching.

Residents who lost work or whose businesses were damaged in storms, flooding and mudslides may be eligible.

Pike County's application deadline is Friday. In Carter and Lewis counties, the deadline is Sept. 10. For Madison, Mason and Rowan counties, the deadline is Sept. 16.

The Kentucky Office of Employment and Training administers the federally funded program. To file a claim, people should visit the employment and training office nearest them. For locations, visit www.workforce.ky.gov.

Farmers and those who are self-employed can qualify. A 2009 income tax return copy is required. Other applicants need only a photo-identification card and their Social Security numbers.
