How do I file for unemployment, being self employed?

When I tried to file unemployment last year I just forgot about it when it said "if you was employed before this time" because at that time I was currently on best rest due to complications in my pregnancy. I also have to file as self employed. I was a caregiver for my grandfather and my aunt that were suffering from cancer. They both have passed away now. And I was doing my house cleaning business, which covid put a stop too. TIA #benefits #advice #covid #eligibility #tennesseeresident #helpme

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, @Tara Spurrier . Our thoughts are with you and your family. Here is some information about [what to expect from unemployment this year-(https://www.jobcase.com/articles/what-to-expect-from-unemployment-in-2021), it goes into some detail about PUA which is the program that covers self-employed workers. Thanks!
