Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your loss of job.
Yes, you would be eligible for unemployment benefits because your job loss is not your fault.
Good evening,Different expert here as I see you requested a new professional. If the agreement specifies that the lump sum constitutes pay for a specific time period, you will be ineligible for Ui until that specified time period lapses, yes.
It unfortunately is possible that you could be without income for several months, yes, especially when you consider that the first week of claiming benefits, you actually aren't paid. A lot is going to depend on how your employer intends to define this severance -and that is information you would have to get from the employer.
