For someone with almost 20 years service with Lenovo, how much severance would you expect to receive these days? I'm hearing 2-3 weeks per year, is this accurate?

If you were affected by the RA you probably have something in front of you from the company. If you're unsure of whether that is a fair amount you can always take a look at the Ontario ESA to determine what provincial minimums dictate (assuming you're in Ontario). Lenovo isn't legally required to offer you more than that unless stipulated in your employment contract.
It's been a while since I've looked at anything HR related, but in Ontario the minimum required is two weeks per year, at your OTE (if you're eligible). Unless you negotiate further this is likely what you'll be getting.
If you have been affected, sorry to see you go - lost a ton of good people in NA last week. Wishing you all the best!
In US it continues to be 2 weeks per year up to half a year of severance. In China severance is much more generous.
