when to file a retaliation complaint

I filed a complaint with the MCAD one year ago for age/sex discrimination. My position was given to a younger man with no experience. The investigation is about to end and I have the impression I will win. Three weeks ago my former employer laid me off after telling me I had a job with the company for as long as I wanted.

The investigator had asked me if I was going to file a retaliation complaint. I thought i'd wait until I had a decision on the initial complaint. I feel it was retaliation but he did lay off 5 people due to slow business. should I go ahead and file now ? What happens after i win the initial complaint? Am I suppose to ask for a settlement or does the MCAD figure that out?
