What matters, in terms of this being income is whether or not it is a periodic payment based on contributions from a "base period" employer.
So, if your question was whether or not IRA monthly payments (if you had reached retirement age and were receiving period payments) would count against unemployment, then the question would be whether or not that IRA or 401k issuing those payments were contributed to by an employer in the base period for which you are requesting unemployment benefits (employers in the last year or so).
But your facts don't fit that pattern. This is not retirement income derived from periodic payments. Instead, it is a lump sum withdrawal from savings
In fact, the Act makes it clear in Section 205.050, paragraph 5, that one-time lump sum payments or withdrawals are not periodic payments, and so are not deductible.
