WTA Cash Severance Benefit

If you are involuntarily separated from employment, you may be eligible for the Workforce Transition Act (WTA) cash severance benefit.* This benefit includes severance payments and continued state contributions toward health insurance premiums and group life insurance premiums for up to 12 months from your layoff date. At the end of 12 months, you have several options regarding your insurance coverage.

*If you meet eligibility requirements under WTA, you may convert the value of your WTA cash severance benefit to WTA additional retirement credit used to calculate your retirement benefit. See Retiring Under WTA for further information.

Severance policies and information are available at the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM).
