It is important to remember that redundancy packages are not a capital windfall to rely on, they are simply intended to provide a cash flow between jobs.
Do you have a structured budget with a basic idea of weekly expenditure?
Do you know how your redundancy payment works and how it is taxed?
Do you know if you are eligible for any government entitlements?
The above, combined with the stress of losing your job can all be a bit much to take in, which is why it is very important to seek professional help to guide you through to make the right decisions to start moving forward again.
