Paid non-compete and unemployment benefits

Hi I am getting a severance package of 2 weeks from my employer in NJ. However I also have a non-compete for 1 year. They are going to pay me during the 1 year non-compete and preventing me to work at another competitor. Can I file for unemployment insurance during that 1 year? I worked in NJ but live in NY.

You should ask a New Jersey attorney. In New York unless 30 days have passed between your termination date and your initial receipt of severance pay you will have to wait until your severance pay is exhausted.
