Earlier, I posted about how difficult the State of Florida makes it to obtain unemployment compensation. Well, after Mr. Sam worked on this task for a few weeks, jumped through all the hoops, spent hours completing forms and making his way through the mice trap the State of Florida has set up (in order to deny benefits) he learned he is not eligible since he received a severance package.
Ugh times a hundred. Such a huge waste of time and red tape. Assuming Mr. Sam is still unemployed when his severance package expires he can reapply and the severance doesn't reduce the number of weeks of payments.
