  • Severance and Unemployment New Mexico New York

    My employer in the state of New York just offered me a severance agreement where I would be paid for two months. My question is if I signed the agreement which basically is saying it's an amicable separation, would I qualify for unemployment during or after the two month period has passed if I could not find employment by then, or would I be waiving my right to request unemployment at that time?

    You would not waive your right to future benefits. I would just file, inform them of the severance pay, and let the state make the decision.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        I too suggest you file but its doubtful they will pay you any benefits until your serverence runs out ( 2 mos) or you find work. Why should the state pay you if your geting paid from your old job? Again I agree file worse they can say is no. There is no penalty for trying and not getting benefits
