Can I Get Pennsylvania Unemployment if I am Receiving a Severance?

Severance Under PA Unemployment Law - What Are the Rules in Pennsylvania Regarding Severance and Unemployment Benefits?

Lots of Rules to Know!
If you are receiving a total severance package worth less than $17,900, your severance will have no impact on your unemployment benefits.

If you are receiving more than $17,900 in severance, your unemployment benefits will be reduced.

TIP:  Do not permit your former employer to characterize unused vacation pay, sick days, etc. as "severance."  Also, settlement of a disputed claim is not severance pay.
