I am currently working for a family as their nanny. I have been employed with them for seven years. At the end of the summer, my services will no longer be needed. I am trying to find another job, but in the event that I cannot would I be eligible for unemployment?

In most cases, self employed workers and/or freelance workers who lose their income are not eligible for unemployment benefits. That's because employers contribute to a fund for unemployment benefits and if you are operating as self employed, you probably didn't pay into the unemployment fund.

However, if your business is incorporated and pays into unemployment you may be eligible to collect unemployment benefits.
