Re: RAV registration and benefit payable.

The RAV will also help you with German lessons for your level if you need them. They will pay for them, as long as you do all the other things they want you to do, eg. apply min 10x per month on suitable jobs and attent their monthly meeting with you

Actually the legal requirement is ANY job, rather than suitable job! You can interpret 'ANY' how you like if there are not enough jobs in your field. The jobs can be advertised can be anywhere in the world.

Re: RAV registration and benefit payable.

Use Chrome, search for the site, and hit the 'Translate this page' button:

rav-registration-benefit-payable-capture.png

Seems to work.

rav-registration-benefit-payable-capture_2.jpg

Seems to work in IE also, seems it's just a Google thing.

OK, well here is the first tip - you will be required to communicate with the RAV and Arbitslosenkasse in German and if unable to do so, it is your responsibility to provide a translator/interpreter. If you don't know anyone that can help you on that score, you might try hiring someone on Rent-A-Renter.

When it comes to choosing an Arbitslosenkasse, you might want to consider the Unia one, rather than the state one, as I find their German documents are a bit more straight forward to understand (they have a lot of foreign members ) and apparently they are supposed to be a bit more on the worker's side when it comes to making decisions, although I don't know if this is true!

The first step is to register with the RAV as soon as possible. When I went to register, I noticed that several people who had difficulty with German asked and was allowed to bring the forms home to complete with the help of a friend. So that might be something for you. One thing they will want to know is what you have done up to now to try and find a job: In particular they wanted to know:
- Have you updated your Linkedin & Xing profiles
- Facebook and other social media
- Searched for jobs on line
- Searched for jobs in papers
- Networking activities: user groups, looking up old colleagues in other firms etc....
- Job applications the you made

The documents that are required include
- Employment contract
- Termination notice
- Reference letter
- Confirmation of salary by employer (needs to show last 12 months salary)
- Birth certificates etc.. for children, if you are responsible for their maintenance
- Resume
- List of jobs you have already applied for: use their form it looks better.
- Passport/ID card and Permit if not Swiss
- Passport/ID card if Swiss

The RAV and the Arbitslosenkasse are two different organisations, you need to register first with the RAV and tell them which Arbitslosenkasse you wish to use. Then you register with the Arbitslosenkasse, make sure you get a copy of RAV registration confirmation, as the Arbitslosenkasse people will want to see it.

Before your first meeting with your RAV agent, you will need to send them the up to date resume and jobs list. My advice is to have this interview as soon as possible, during the notice period even, so that you have a chance to iron out any issues that may arise before you have to start claiming the cash.

In my opinion the more organised you are the easier the process will go - have a nice big file with all your stuff in it, have copies of the documents they might ask for so they don't have to do it and so on. These people have to deal with all kinds of jokers, so they appreciate it when someone actually seems to be serious about things and you'll build up some credit with them.

Good Luck.

In reality, that depends on the offices that you use.

For the RAV I was at, the front desk staff spoke English and went through all the paperwork and explained it. They also allocated me to an English speaking consultant, who was happy to speak and write in English. The introductory workshop was also held in English as well (although I did have to wait a while for the next available English one).

The Arbitslosenkasse was a different matter - my local one does have some English speaking staff, but some of the counter staff don't speak any English - so at least being able to ask for an English speaking member of staff was vital. They will also only write in German, so having someone (or Google) to translate is necessary.
