I submitted my resignation and was released from work 5 days prior to official resignation date. Am I eligible for unemployment compensation for those five days?

I submitted my resignation on 1/17/2016 for my last day to be 1/29/2016. My manager then informed my that my services would not be needed after 1/24/2016.

Technically yes. You were involuntarily terminated on the 24th, so you would be eligible for unemployment due to the involuntary termination. But that eligibility would end as of the 29th, the day you intended to voluntarily terminate.

However, there is a one week waiting requirement for unemployment. Therefore, while you would have 5 days of unemployment, those would fall within your waiting week and therefore you would not receive any compensation.
