And that is much different than here in the Midwest as well. My sister
was laid off last December, and her severence lasted until February. The
severence was considered a wage--the Unemployment Office here told her she
could not collect until it was completely paid out. She got unemployment
only after the severence *and* the additional two-week waiting period they
require here where one receives NO check of any kind. I believe their
theory must be that it builds character. :)

And here she had to file, go to the Unemployment Office, fill out her
paperword, interview there, and of course check in every week until she
found new work--or six months, which is how long the UI pays out here.

It sounds as if each state has its own rules.
