Does receiving separation-related payments, such as severance pay or vacation pay, affect my benefits?

Generally, a claimant is eligible for unemployment insurance benefits while receiving separation-related payments. However, an individual will not be eligible for benefits if he or she continues to receive the full salary and exactly the same benefits that he or she received while working, with the understanding that the salary and benefits will stop if he or she becomes employed elsewhere. The employer’s payment of unused vacation accruals normally does not affect an individual’s eligibility for benefits. more
