If the unemployment department denied your claim, the EDD will mail you written notice that it has denied you benefits. The letter will include notification of your right to appeal the decision. The time to file an appeal notice is extremely short, typically a few days from the date the EDD MAILED the letter to you, not when you received it. Filing a notice of appeal is fairly simple. Just use the form provided by the EDD. Appeals are very informal. They take place at the local EDD office. The judge is an administrative law judge.
After the hearing, the judge mails both sides a written decision, typically within days of the hearing. The losing party can appeal the judge's decision.
Self-employment does not usually qualify for UI benefits coverage. However, it says to contact EDD so they can determine if the individual is entitled to benefits. In other words it is handled on a case by case basis.

i don't understand if i've paid into unemployment insurance for the last 6 years being in business ..why would i not able to collect from what i Accumulated all theses years????
I agree with you and I think you probably should, but what they will probably look for is pay check stubs issued from the company to you or your husband. I think you have a good argument.
