I Have owned my LLC for three years but had to shut it down last month is there anyway I can collect unemployment?
Generally, the “self-employed” are not eligible for unemployment benefits, but it is a state to state issue of whether a “corporate officer” can collect unemployment.
The only resource I know of that addresses your question is the USDOL’s “Coverage” chartbook.
I think Table 1-7 is most relevant to you. If I read what it says about California correctly .. it seems it is possible under certain circumstances.
