There is usually no jail time, however it is considered fraud. There are serious consequences. I worked for the unemployment and all of your wages are reported to the state. They show up on a quarterly basis, so when you are collecting and working, they may not be aware of it, however when those wages are posted they will come after you. You will have to pay it back before being eligible for benefits in the future and they can disqualify you for the state maximum period of time in the future. Also, most employers HR office send information to the unemployment office when you are offered a job.
