Thanks for the info. I gave them a call. They told me that any profits from a side business would affect the amount of unemployment benefits received but would not necessarily eliminate them. The example they gave: if someone had a side business that generated $100 a week, and they lost their main source of income, the side business would cut $50 from their weekly unemployment check. In other words, you wouldn`t be left high and dry, which was my concern. By the way, this is for the state of Michigan - I don`t know what the rules are for other states.
