Can I collect unemployment when my company offers a severance of 9 months, when I am I eligible for it?

I live in the state of Pennsylvania and we are being offered a severance of 9 months, and 12 months of medical and dental. When am I eligible for unemployment on the last payment or immediately after termination? (paid on a monthly basis, the last Friday of the month; in other words no lump sum) This question has bogged down even our HR team here on site. Please help.

    A similar situation happened to me.

    A company I worked for closed. I was given severance pay. Unemployment was granted immediately. Remember, it's your employer who pays for unemployment insurance.
