    Turns out it was pretty cut and dry. Here in Maine, since I had paid unemployment insurance. I am qualified to receive unemployment benefits. When I get a check I will update with the amount.

    I like fast follow ups when people start OP's but 17 minutes has to be a record.

    I'd be curious to see if ones unemployment rate goes up after using it or if the amount you get back is anywhere near what you put in.

    I don’t know about there but in Illinois it’s required if I pay myself anything on a w2. As I do…

    However I asked if I could file and under what conditions… I was laugh at.

    If your lung issue is severe, you might be able to get disability. Hope all works out. We said a prayer for you before dinner.
