"Retirement" is either voluntary(personal decision) or forced (company decision). If you have been "retired" by a company based on age factors set by that company, it would be possible to collect unemployment as it constitutes firing. If you voluntarily left the job and called it retirement, then no, you can't. Contact your local state employment office and inquire. In most states, it isn't a function of the company to make you retire. My mother is still working...at 76... and is covered by the unemployment laws even though she is "retirement age".

If you retired for good, no. You have to be available, ready, willing, able, and actively seeking full time employment in most if not all states. Also it would depend on whether you were even eligible in the first place.
