    ... two months this week ...



    I have been told that I would receive an allowance from Social Security two months this week. What I mean by the underlined part is that I have to wait at least sixty days starting from this week to receive unemployment compensation.

    Is it correct to say/write two months this week, please?

    That should be "two months from this week".
