How about setting something up so we can all exchange Unemployment, Cobra, etc info. ? Having gone through some of this already I can tell you that it is very confusing and sharing info. will help those going through it now.Alright, I'm here to help. Consider this an open thread for laid off workers. Weigh in with tips or questions you have about COBRA, applying for unemployment benefits, etc.
I have no idea how much interest there is but I'll throw it out there and see what happens.
UPDATE: Previous blog post on advice for laid off workers here. Good info in that post (all from readers), plus more good advice in comments.
UPDATE #2: In comments, questions about COBRA. An answer here.
