FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — LEX 18 News has received multiple calls regarding problems with the state's unemployment office website being overwhelmed.

A system has been put into play that will divide website traffic alphabetically. The system was put into place Wednesday.

Last names that start with J-R can apply Thursday. Reference the photo above to see when you can sign up. If you missed your day this week, you can sign up Friday, March 20.

Once a claim is approved, the funds are released automatically with no wait period.
