"I am being paid NOT TO WORK OR EVEN LOOK FOR WORK..."
Sound like retirement, kid. What you are describing is nothing like unemployment where you are required by law to actively pursue employment and track all efforts. If you look at the law as written it is almost prohibitively aggressive on its demands. Rules such as the one that you must directly interview for a minimum of two legitimate jobs per week in order to receive compensation for that week. That is insane. In this economy, you are lucky to interview for two legitimate jobs a year.
