Early Severance pay
« on: December 22, 2016, 02:10:37 pm »
Hey guys, I'm with a public school program and my wife and I are planning to purchase an apartment in Korea. I was wondering, is it possible to cash out the severance early and continue working? Thanks !

I'm in a similar situation.  I work at a public school as well and I asked them about receiving my severance in order to purchase a better quality place.  The administration office at my school said that usually they don't give the severance money until after you leave your current workplace but due to the fact I would be using the money for my housing, it counts as an exception.  They said I just need to give them a copy of my housing contract. 

TLDR: Speak to your school's administration office.
Reality is an illusion which occurs due to the lack of alcohol.

I know a couple people who have done this, but I don't know much more than that.

There is a maximum you can withdraw.

Best of luck.
