A) If you were self-employed and seeking unemployment benefits during the pandemic, you will need to file your claim with your state unemployment office. you will need to file in the state where you worked while self employed. The federal government has expanded unemployment benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Self-employed workers who are usually ineligible for unemployment benefits — including independent contractors, sole proprietors and gig workers — may now be eligible.
