Unemployment claims do not void severance. However, you may not be eligible to start unemployment until severance payments are finished.

It sounds like you have a formal severance agreement with your employer. If this is true, an attorney will need to thoroughly review the agreement and also discuss with you how you decided to terminate your employment.

That would depend on exactly what your severance agreement says.
