Can I collect unemployment if I just received a lump sum severance package?

The company I work for just merged with another company and approximately 80% of the employees are being laid off, including myself. The severance packages are from 3 months to 6 months payout depending on the time employed with the company. Mine will be 5 months. My last day is March 1st and my severance package is for 5 months however; to my understanding, a great amount is deducted due to taxes. How long can I get unemployment for, what is the amount now and when can I apply?
