In addition to the 5-day waiting period, other factors may also affect the starting date of allowance payments.

Payment of unemployment allowance always starts only after a 5-day waiting period, regardless of why you became unemployed or laid-off. If TE Office has not imposed a mandatory waiting period (of 15 to 90 days) on you, and you haven't entered into an employment termination agreement with your employer, it is enough that you read the information on the 5-day waiting period.
