I am receiving unemployment and after searching for a decent paying job and finding nothing i have decided to open up my own consignment store. can I still receive unemployment until i am making a profit? I live in Oklahoma.




Hi Rachel,

Doubtful Rachel, It takes time .. a whole lot of time to open a business and even more time to turn a profit.

You must be able and available for work and actively seeking work to collect unemployment.

I'm sure the state would consider this a severe restriction on your ability and availability for other work.
