15. Ok, well if the question is
Can one get away with receiving unemployment benefits while not looking for work, and doing other things. Yes, although technically not legal, for instance they say on the form they can make you pay back all benefits if they find you have been dishonest in your answers every week, it is possible to do this from my experience. It depends on if one is willing to take (a very small risk, in my opinion) whether one wants to do this route.
