yes, you should be able to get uneployment as long as you didn't quit your last job.

It depends on what country you live in, here in Canada you cannot collect when you have been out of work that long, your employment benefits run out 12 months from the date you started to collect, you can apply for welfare instead.

It is always best to check with your Employment office in your area.
