When it comes to unemployment benefits, does it generally matter whether you take a voluntary separation package or involuntary separation package?

As you say, every state probably differs and the best way to find out the answer is to call your state. In Oregon, I was able to begin drawing unemployment immediately, even though I was still on payroll for the severance package for almost three months. The key for them was that the job had ended with no possibility of recall.
