My release date was Feb 16. I was given 13 week severance package. Must I file unemployment now or after 13 weeks.

Q) My release date was Feb 16, 2018 for lack of work. I was given a severance package for 13 weeks. Must I file for benefits or do I wait the 13 weeks before contacting my local office? Please advise.

A) Different states have different policies regarding severance, and whether your pay will affect unemployment benefits depends on state law. Check with the unemployment office for your state to get the definitive answer on whether your severance will affect your unemployment benefits. Because laws vary from state to state, it’s important to check with your state unemployment office for how severance pay will be handled. You may find this information on your state unemployment office website, or call their phone number for assistance.
