I'm sorry. You put Virginia, which I'm assuming is where you work.If you were living in Maryland, your unemployment would be controlled by them.Maryland actually does go through the process of determining whether or not a situation was a termination or a resignation/retirement. You should file for unemployment and make the employer attempt to argue that you voluntarily retired while you argue that you were given the option to either retire or be terminated.I will not guarantee you unemployment, but Maryland at least listens to that argument.
