Severance pay is usually paid within 30 days after full execution of severance paperwork. Papers usually include a settlement agreement and a general release or a combined document.

In New York, all employees must be given 21 days in which to consider the terms of a severance package or offer and then 7 days to potentially revoke or rescind their acceptance if an employee changes their mind.

Many severance agreements state a time period in which employees will be paid. Re-read the terms of your severance agreement. The time period might be printed in the paperwork you signed. Once the above time periods expire, it's usually a binding contract which either employee or employer may enforce in court if the terms as drafted are followed.
