sometime last yr we needed state assistance. the yr before i had lost my job so i was collecting unemployment. well later in 2009 i got pregnant and kept looking for work. like many others i never found one and since we were going to have a baby i figured my chances over someone who wasn't pregnant weren't so good of getting hired over them, i stopped applying for the unemployment. at this point i had decided that i would just stay at home and raise my kids and haul it out with the financial burdens that came along. anyway for a few months there my husband was down to bringing home less then $200 for two wks at his job. my child support and his pay check weren't enough. went to state to get some help with food stamps and the lady told me if i was approved for unemployment that i HAD to accept it....i told her truthfully even if i have no intention on going back to work? what would you do?

seems odd. I would get a second and third opinion AND you can get it in writing. If they say you must.... then you must. But morally I think you are doing the correct thing.
