Premium Processing worth it? What if H1B approved but laid off before Oct 1

Hi, I’m just trying to consider if I should go for premium processing with all the layoffs happening. What if, I do premium processing, my petition is approved but before Oct 1, I’m laid off? Can I still transfer the H1B to a different company because it’s already approved? If not, premium processing doesn’t seem like a good option. Can someone please provide any inputs.

Yes, once petition is approved, USCIS may consider you against the cap and the new employer can file a cap-exempt H1B petition.
