I was laid off in December, but my last day was in November. Which do I put on my resume?

I was laid off late last year. November 20th I was given the news and cleaned out my desk. However, as reflected on the letter they gave me, I was actually on 'administrative leave' for the next two weeks, and was officially "furloughed" on December 4.
I realized today that I have different dates on different versions of my resume---one says "May 2008 to November 2009"; the other says "May 2008 — December 2009". Obviously, I need to pick one, but which? The date after which I stopped being paid and receiving benefits, or the date on which I turned in my keycard and was escorted from the building and after which I was available for new work?
