Layoffs

Unemployment benefits

Intuit Ann-wi
Jan 10

Hi,
My friend was recently laid off from a tech company. She did get severance pay based on number of years she was with the company (about 10 yrs). She is looking for a job but so far has got none. Can she still claim unemployment benefits from state? I read that severance pay is not considered as wages in California so theoretically she can but not sure. Any info? Please advise. Thx.

      @HTWn35 not true. Once you're on blind, doesn't matter if you're not at that company anymore.

  • Severance and unemployment are two different things. Assuming she is green card or citizen, she can. Not sure about h1

    The unemployment website will ask about severance and take that into account, she should file weekly until she get another job.
