Negotiating a Severance: Other Benefits

THERE IS MORE THAN CASH ON THE TABLE

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
