Can I apply and receive UI benefit during WARN in CA?

I think you can. Found this at CA EDD: "WARN Act Payments allocated to the period beginning December 30, 2001, and continuing will meet the provisions of UI Code Section 1265.1 and will not be considered wages for unemployment insurance purposes."
You can check more there.
I dont think you can double-dip. UI kicks in when you are no longer in the payroll. During the 2 months period you are still in the payroll, think of it as grace period for you to find another employment.
