Are there any HR bods who can clarify this for me please

In terms of claiming benefits and benefit eligibility is there any difference between 'being made redundant' (company picks you, no choice) and 'accepting voluntary redundancy'? Redundancy payment is the same, no enhancement for taking voluntary

Hopefully someone will be able to help you - I've been working in HR for almost 20 years and I've got no idea about the rules for government benefits at all, it's not really an HR thing I'm afraid.

In my old job they always phrased it as your role bring made redundant, whether it was voluntary or compulsory. This was to help with mortgage insurance, benefit claims etc.
