State University Retirement System (surs) and Unemployment benefits in Illinois?
At age 55, can I receive unemployment benefits and collect my pension from SURS at the same time?

If you are terminated (not for cause) or laid off from your job, yes. If you retire, no. You should review the web site for unemployment benefits for the state in which you work for additional information or exceptions. There will also be a contact number you can use for direct questioning.
