Generally is you are not working for a health related reason you cannot recover UC unless there was a job within your restrictions that was made unavailable. You also have the issue that you retired, which may limit benefits. You should be conscious of the fact that if there is a work injury or aggravation of an existing injury, you may have workers compensation benefits. Many people retire without getting these benefits. If your retirement was because of a work related condition or aggravation you can still attempt to get these benefits. Good luck.
