We live in Indiana and my husband just recently -- like two days ago -- was downsized due to the economy. We have had a home business that is in his name because I am on disability with a disability from a childhood illness that is not going to get better. I do work part time but not enough to affect disability benefits. I basically need the medical insurance. So our home business is in my husband`s name. He just submitted for unemployment benefits and as we were filling out the online application came to the question "Are you self-employed?" We suddenly realized that our home business may affect his unemployment benefits and we certainly do not make enough to sustain ourselves with the home business. I`m concerned about raising any red flags with the unemployment office but do not know how to address this issue. We make maybe $1500/month with the home business -- not enough to live on but certainly we don`t want to walk away from that income either. Does anyone have any advice?
