    Well, with all of them the end result is the same; you get unemployment benefits. That doesn't mean, however, that those three words always have the same meaning. They are not interchangeable in every case.

    ok, for example, somebody doesn't work, but ... unemployment benefits.

    In that sentence, either "receives", "collects" or "draws" would work.
