Good afternoon Terry,
I listen to you often on the WGN Business Lunch. You are a wealth of information and I thank you!
I have a quick question on PUA benefits for independent contractors. As you know, you had to apply to be denied and then re-apply under the independent contractor PUA. So I’ve received a letter denying benefits (for initial application I’m sure) but received email that PUA looks like I’m eligible. Would I as an independent contractor need to register at the Illinois Joblink and upload a resume? I believe it said that a next step. Also Do we as independent contractors need to do this and upload a resume (I don’t have one) and record work searched for each week. Would we say we called a past client or asked for a referral?
Or is that part for non independent contractors.?
Also asking to certify for weeks prior to March 30? Should I try or just not attempt because most likely will be denied. Just don’t want to upset the system by not doing something.
Thank you so much!
