To collect or not to collect

I have 2 months until school starts officially, after researching the technicalities I found out that I am eligible to collect unemployment until then.  Now this is where my dilemma starts, would it harm my future career in any way at all if I collect unemployment.  From what I hear employers do extensive background checks, when one gets to the executive level and unemployment can be considered a red flag.  Does anyone else have any experience with this subject?  I think of it this way “IT'S MY OWN MONEY” that I will be getting back… but I am a bit worried about future employment options.  HELP!!!!!
