Negotiating a Severance: Other Benefits


Many times some of these items are not requested and not offered, but might be offered if you asked for them.  Attending a conference, for example, can be important because so many of the people you want to meet may be in the same place at the same time.

Keep the following in mind:

  • Negotiate for your total health benefits package for as long as possible and find out about continuation beyond that time at your expense through COBRA
  • Agree upon who will give you a reference
  • Request expenses to conferences or conventions that will allow you to network for your next job
  • Determine if you are eligible for relocation costs including purchase of your home, real estate fees, closing costs, mortgage rate differential
  • Learn the dollar value of family transportation costs and lodging fees
  • Ask if you can use office space, administrative assistant services and a telephone while in your job search
  • Ask how long your office phone will be answered if you are not offered office space
