    Have your contacted the company (probably HR or the payroll department, through your old manager if you don't have their contact information) yet? – Thomas Owens Dec 4 '15 at 17:43

    Were there terms when you left that you would still be paid regularly as part of a severance package? Some companies may do that in some cases though I'd second the previous comment of asking the company what is happening. – JB King Dec 4 '15 at 17:45

    It sounds like a clerical error. The one thing I would caution here is don't spend the money before this is settled. If you spend it and then the company demands it back (which they can legally do) you will have put yourself in a financial bind. I'd recommend transferring it temporarily to a saving account, just to help you keep it isolated. – Francine DeGrood Taylor Dec 4 '15 at 18:26
  • When they find out they kept paying you they will most likely demand their money back, or even sue you for not reporting it. I would contact them and have a cheque ready. – AndreiROM Dec 4 '15 at 20:24

Though it is not you to blame for a salary not being stopped once you resigned, which means someone is not doing their job for your previous employer. Ethically it is a responsibility of yours to notify the company about this issue, and again this should be a decision to be made from your side.
