Am I Eligible If I Received A Retirement Pension Or Severance Pay?

If you are receiving a retirement pension from a base period employer, the pension may be deductible from your weekly benefit amount if your employer contributed 50% or more toward the pension fund. If the pension payment is determined to be deductible, they will reduce your weekly benefit amount dollar for dollar by the weekly amount of the pension that is attributable to the employer.

If your employer paid you wages in lieu of notice or separation pay, you are usually not eligible for unemployment insurance benefits during the period covered by the separation pay.
