To be eligible for regular UI benefits, you must be actively seeking work as an employee. You can still look for self-employment work as long as it does not interfere with your availability for work as an employee.
You may also apply for our Self-Employment Assistance (SEA) program. This program is only open to people getting regular UI benefits. If you are accepted into the program, you will receive a notice of approval and your new weekly SEA requirements. Call the UI Special Programs Center at 503-947-1800 to see if you are eligible.
