Can a claimant go on vacation while receiving benefits?

A primary requirement for receiving unemployment is that you must look for and be able and available to work while you are receiving unemployment benefits. This would mean a week spent away on vacation, or even in the hospital, could mean you cannot collect unemployment because you wouldn’t be able and available to accept or look for a job.
