I think you are referring to:

severance package

pay and benefits employees receive when they leave employment at a company unwillfully. In addition to their remaining regular pay, it may include some of the following: Any additional payment based on months of service. Payment for unused accrued PTO vacation time Holiday pay or sick leave.


  • In India, it is called 'final settlement' whether it is retirement or termination of service.

  • It could just be a paycheck. Severance package is very fancy.
