If my employer didn't renew my 1 year contract, can I receive unemployment benefits?

I was given the option to resign 2 months early or finish out my contract as they were eliminating the position, but the HR Director and subsequent work environment was so hostile, I felt pushed out. I took the offer to terminate my contract early as staying on would have been intolerable. I was paid for the time remaining on my contract (the 2 months), but due to my age, have had a difficult time finding a new job. I would like to file for unemployment benefits while I try to find a new job as I have 2 school-aged children with special needs to support.
