Even though you may be receiving severance pay, you are eligible to collect unemployment from your last day of work. Do not wait until your severance runs out to file your claim. It takes a few weeks from the day you filed to receive any paperwork or a check!
Also, for those of you that are pregnant and recently were laid off or will be getting laid off in the near future....you are also eligible to claim! Just an FYI because I have seen quite a few posts questioning both. If you are unsure just visit your state website! Hope this helps anyone questioning their eligibility!
