Unemployment Insurance?

Hi there, this might be a stretch. Has anyone been a seller of fiverr and received unemployment benefits after being let go from their full-time job?

Work on her is so sporadic for me it’s hard to supplement my income but I don’t want my already low rate of UI to be reduced.

I know we’re to report any income. Just curious if anyone else is collecting UI.

If you are in the U.S., you need to have been employed someplace where you were fired from a regular job through no fault of your own and then apply for them. You can’t get fired from fiverr.

Let me edit my post. I’m not sure I’m making sense.

I see what you mean now. You meant if you can get them if you have a regular job also in addition to your fiverr gigs. I’m not sure about that.

Good question. Unfortunately, I don’t know. You can probably ask at a Job Services place. If there’s not one close by, maybe try calling?
