EI Application - How soon or late after being laid off can I apply?

I got laid off yesterday Jan 26. Considering that I was given a few months package, can I go ahead to apply for EI right away or I have to wait until after the number of months my package cover?

Does anybody know the correct way to approach this?

Where is the government in all this? They should be assisting the most important industry in Canada which is oil and gas. Did you know that for every $1 that is invested in oil and gas generates $15 in spin-off benefits for the rest of the country. The rest of Canada has benefited from all the transfer payments we have made over the years. The rest of the country needs to help Alberta in her time of need.

We are making sacrifices cuts etc to healthcare and education in order to save the most important industry which is oil and gas. The rest of the country hasn’t even done an iota.

Jason Kenny has really messed things up with the conserve and WeirdRose merger. We can’t even depend on our provincial government. The NDP looks better every day.

Yep apply when you get that code. That way you have all your hours going into it. If you wait to apply you will have several months of 0 hours to apply towards the calculation

Thanks for your contribution everybody. I will apply as soon as I get my REO.

By the way, in am surprised that somebody would give my question a negative score. What is it about my question that they don't like? Bro, show love to a laid off person. You may be next, you never know.

You can apply immediately, open a file. They will advise you via email or letter when you qualify. They do calculate and take into consideration your severance. I believe with Covid there is no 2 week waiting period.

“I recommend contacting the state employment office for the answer. They will have the absolute correct SOP on how and when“

You have to verify that your Record of Employment is in the system. IT usually takes up to 5 days to the employer to submit the ROE.

I will recommend to wait 2 weeks. Sometimes Employment Insurance start to pay you 2 weeks after your application. If later, they find out that you received the severance package, you will have to refund that money. Employment Insurance officer will let you know when you should receive the check after spending your severance package first.

I think you can apply right away to get into the system, they just won't give you anything until you burn up your severance, they should be able to tell you what date your eligible to start getting some money. Good luck bro.
