Do I qualify for unemployment if I accept Voluntary Separation Package?

unemployed_personQ) If my employee was doing layoffs and asked for volunteers for unemployment, would I be able to qualify for unemployment after accepting a Voluntary Separation Package?

A) If you do accept your Voluntary Separation Package it is best to apply for unemployment Benefits as you may be eligible. You are always entitled to apply for unemployment benefits if you have lost your job or partially employed. However keep in mind that The general requirement for unemployment insurance benefits is:

Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
Be totally or partially unemployed.
Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
Be actively looking for work.
Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.
