I've had a few interviews lately and the follow question keeps coming up. "Are you eligible to work for you former employer?" What would make me not eligible to work for them?

I worked for my former employer for 18 months, before my department was shut down. I was offered a severance package but instead got a new job in a different department in the company. The new job was not a good fit for me so I left after 5 months. At the urging of a friend who works in an HR department, I filed for Unemployment and 'won' the benefits. Would this possibly make me not eligible to return to my former company? What are some other things that would make me not eligible?
