How accommodating is HR to help resolve some post-layoff dilemmas? I saw here that someone says that he did not get almost any help from HR. Well that’s really a shame and despite everything I can’t believe this company has fallen so low. Has this happened to others? I am already mentally preparing for the layoff and all inconveniences that can happen.

Best way to get response is to send them an email. They usually respond in 24 hours.
Be prepared to be on hold....for hours. Then when you get someone, hope you can understand them. Then, if their answer doesn't seem right, call back in and repeat process and see if you get the same answer.
Your luck may be different than mine and others. If you trip them up with a question, it may take days to get an answer. Even weeks.
Best day of my life other than the day they got rid of me was the day I didn't need help from them anymore.
Just remember the quote from the movie "the Enforcer" regarding what was known then as "personnel"
uttered by Dirty Harry.
Most of HR is contracted, they have off shore people reading scripts if you can get a hold of them. People on shore are swamped with all the paperwork and plodding through making sure they get the distributions of materials right. Then you have all the Retirement people trying to answer questions. They will probably ask to set up an appointment time.
Then if Union you have to be able to do internal job searches and they have to provide the listings. Process all those positions you will take, don't limit yourself if you really want to work there, if you don't list the Location and exact title they will not put you in that bucket,
