I would encourage you to ask both your employer as well as your local unemployment office!
And, I encourage you to take some classes and get back to work. Retiring is getting more and more difficult -- rising health care costs, longer life spans and uncertainty as to the viability of pensions and Social Security mean that:
1) retirees will rely more heavily on their own savings
2) retirees will be working longer
It will be great if you can train for and find a career that you love.
