Unemployment Insurance is for people who are out of work (unemployed) due to no fault of their own. In other words, it is not their fault, they didnt want to sever from their job. It was the employer's decision. So if you signed a paper that says you self terminated, tell the unemployment office that you had no choice. Quit or be fired.
Is there anything you could have done to save your job? such as requesting a leave of absence, working part time, etc. What does "I terminated" mean? If you had no option other than to terminate, then you didnt quit and you were terminated by employer, so it's probably not your fault.
You have to be released to return to work in order to qualify for unemployment benefits.
