Am I eligible for payment if my company has changed my resignation date?

Question Details: I announced my planned resignation, in about 6 weeks from now, to my company's Board of Directors via email letter. When the Board responded, they notified me that the organization is closing the office I work in and laying off the other employee to move operations to another country. The Board has said my last day will be the end of next month. Am I entitled to any kind of severance such as paid out vacation days or payment because my last day was changed or because my job is being eliminated when the office is closed and operations are moved overseas?
