The type of documentation may vary based on the type of business you do. You must be able to show us that you spent 40 hours per week on activities related to your business. Common types of records that can help show this include:
- Bank statements showing active business transactions
- Proof of advertisements or social media posts promoting your business
- Emails or correspondence with other companies
- Job bid proposals
Please note: The above list is not all inclusive and proof of work search for self-employment may depend on the specific type of work you perform. We may request a copy of your work search at any time and may request additional information about your self-employment activities in an attempt to confirm work search activity.
Your benefits will stop if you do NOT seek work as required, which may result in overpayments and penalties.
