You can probably call and see if you are eligible. However, the rules for unemployment vary...and being fired for cause is generally a reason for NOT being eligible.

Most states let you file for unemployment online. Check your state website. Depending on why you got fired, you might or might be eligible. Apply and they'll evaluate your situation. Unemployment is generally significantly less that what you make on your job, often around half or sometimes more.
