Illinois unemployment benefits and how they relate to a new small business owner?

I am currently unemployed and collecting Illinois unemployment benefits. If I take a new job as a non-employee contractor for a new company then I am technically self employed, correct? If so, would I be eligible to continue collecting unemployment benefits while I am in the start up period of that career and not making any income?

  • U Can't handle the truth:

    In NY, sub contractors have a LOT of limitations and cannot collect unemployment. They are technically working from themselves. I don’t know how thye would find out that information, which you are probably required to declare to collect the benefits.

  • Landlord:

    No, you can not, to do so would be to commit fraud. You will be employed, self employed is still employed. You are no longer seeking employment.
