Great find Robert! This is a key factor for those that are forced to work in a 1099 status. Even thought most of us are running business, we are still employees and do qualify for unemployment between jobs.

This is very interesting as I do live in one of those states, but to me the article and the link on it implies that you have to be unemployed in the classic sense - you can't have been self-employed and lost your work to participate. It seems like it operates as an extension for those who want to start a business - quite different than benefits to the self-employed.
