“Are OWNERS of small businesses such as hair salons, gyms, boutiques, etc., eligible to apply for unemployment benefits?” This was the answer:
If you are self-employed and have been impacted by COVID-19, you may qualify for unemployment benefits under the Federal Stimulus Bill.
When submitting a claim, list your information in the appropriate fields.
If you have not yet submitted a claim for unemployment, you can apply for benefits either online at any time using Unemployment Benefits Services or by calling TWC’s Tele-Center at 800-939-6631 from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time on Saturday.
I hope this information helps some of our community.
