I don't see how it would affect his benefits... they don't monitor your bank accounts do they?
I was drawing Georgia unemployment... got a job in WA and borrowed $4000 from my parents to move cross country and get settled, and still collected the last 2 weeks of Georgia UI for the time from when I left the state till the time I started the job in WA.
