I'm exempt and working in MN for a large publicly held company until given R.I.F. termination notice last June. In July they extended my termination to an undefined date. I continue working with the current pay and benefits without the normal review. I interviewed for other positions within the company without success. In October they finally set a termination date in writing for next February as when I could be eligible for my severance package. Now in December they are considering extending me again until next May or beyond.

Can I leave the company after the Feb date and demand my severance?

Should I get any choices in their extensions like accept/decline/early out clause?

You can leave the company at any time you want, but if you leave before you are RIF'd you will have no legal basis for demanding your severance.
