We hear all the time about unemployment benefits for laid off workers. (Or at least you should -- if you're a business owner, chances are you and your employees are paying into the unemployment system.) But what about unemployment benefits for failed entrepreneurs? If you owned an unlucky small business, are you out of luck when it comes to unemployment?
While each state may run their unemployment benefit programs a little differently, there is one general rule to unemployment for small business owners: pay in, get paid.
