Can you collect unemployement while collecting Severance?
I'm in CA and my work went out of business. My work is paying us for 2 additional months (we get a check every 2 weeks). Several of my co-workers are collecting both, and I was recently told by another one that you can't. I am confused, and don't know if I will have to pay back the money.
I had a question the other day which prompted me to explore this issue. You can find my answer to this question on this page. Don't be thrown by the question which was about being fired. I try to answer any issue a question might raise and this one had a severance pay issue.
The short answer is "it depends in California" and the answer I linked to above has links to the details which explain it.
