No notice, you just wake up locked out and unemployed. I'm very fortunate to not be affected, but it makes me very nervous. What are the types of things to think about doing to be prepped for a sudden layoff, aside from the baseline of having enough money to survive unemployment for 3-12 months. Thinking of, what types of records should I keep hard copies of, how to prep my 401k, etc. The most important thing is your personal data. What do you have on your work computer that is truly yours (examples: pictures of your kids, your resume, whatever). Make sure you have a backup that you have sent to yourself or transferred to your personal computer. Other than that, just make sure you have some savings.
