Technically yes; however, unless the law has changed recently, all foreigners must be able to support themselves financially while in Poland and failure to be able to do so can be grounds for deportation.

In law, yes - after 3 months, you should either be able to support yourself or get out. If you remember the recent deportations from France of the Roma - it was under this law.

However - if you've got the EU residence certificate, then that's a whole new question - I'm pretty certain they can't then deport you under this law (as you'll have a valid zameldowanie). Interesting legal minefield, though.

Yes - provided they have the EU residence certificate and they also comply with the relevant laws on being eligible for unemployment cash.

I'm sure it burns Polish-Americans inside that we superior Brits can claim cash from Poland and they can't.

(16) As long as the beneficiaries of the right of residence do not become an unreasonable burden
on the social assistance system of the host Member State they should not be expelled.
Therefore, an expulsion measure should not be the automatic consequence of recourse to the
social assistance system.(...)

Article 7
Right of residence for more than three months
(...)

Article 14
Retention of the right of residence

^ The key phrase there is 'unreasonable burden': to Poland any burden at all is unreasonable.,

You mean the Brits who blindly follow girls to Poland?

A superiority in spinelessness perhaps Michael!
