Not true---Check your state's unemployment compensation rules. I worked
1099 and got unemployment in Maryland, and in Virginia (both about 6-8 years
ago). However, I didn't get it on a regular basis. I dare say it varies
significantly. In those states your bi-weekly check is based on whether you
worked, and looked for work, not what kind of tax form you fill out.

Are you working on 1099 or W2? If you're working 1099 you probably aren't

If you're working on W2, go for it. It is just a stipend, but it helps keep
debt collectors at bay. Here in Texas, we're allowed the option of having
pulled out of the unemployment check; if that option is available, I'd do it
means you don't have to dig down as far in your pocket come April 15th!
