Can I still receive unemployment benefits, etc?

Can I Receive Unemployment For Not Renewing Contract Work? I live in CA, and we were acquired by a company from the east coast in May of this year. The company addressed that they would be closing our office when the bldg lease ends. So the company gave us a contract during the transition period that if we would work till the end of the year, they would pay out a $500/month bonus in addition to severance. We're a couple weeks till the contract ends (December 30), but during a virtual meeting, the east coast company proposed that they wanted to extend the offer till first quarter next year. They said they would honor those who would like to leave as per the original contract (to receive bonus & severance). However, if we stay for another few months, even though it's inevitable that we will be let go, they will only pay all the bonus and severance upon termination. So my questions are, is the company required to pay the bonus of the original signed contract to all those that signed it at end of this year, and then provide another contract for the work in the new year for those who are willing to stay? If I left at end of this year, would I be able to receive unemployment benefits knowing that they offered to extend work for just a few months..and also knowing that we would be let go anyway?
