Default Unemployment benefits for GC holders

Gurus,

My contract pre-maturly ended on Sep 27, 2008. I was on hourly rate on W2. So far I haven't find any assignment. I don't get paid.
Am I eligible for unemployment benefits. Has anyone claimed this. Are there any future disadvantages if you show unemployment.

Please let me know

Thanks and Regards

I am not sure about contracting positions, but if you were a full-time employee of a company and are laid-off, then you are eligible to claim unemployment benefits, which is true for GC holders, too.

Does anyone know if claiming unemployment benefits after layoff have any possible impact on a future citizenship application?

It has no effect on a future Citizenship application. Remember it is a payment against unemployment insurance which is paid by your previous employer/s.
As such it is not a burden on the state.
