Unemployment insurance for EU citizen

Hi there,

I have migrated to Switzerland 13 months ago from a EU country? I am EU citizen and am still employed. If I am made redundant, will I be able to claim unemployment benefit because of being a EU citizen without 24 consecutive months in Switzerland.

Please advice.

Regards

Re: Unemployment insurance for EU citizen

AFAIK; you can count the period you worked in an EU country before coming to Switzerland to reach the 24 month figure.

Update: According to below info, 12 months is already enough.

Angenommen, ein EU-Bürger mit B-Bewilligung wird in der Schweiz arbeitslos. Für einen Anspruch auf Unterstützung müssen zwei Bedingungen erfüllt sein: Der Arbeitsvertrag war unbefristet oder befristet auf mindestens ein Jahr. Zudem muss er mindestens zwölf Monate lang in eine Arbeitslosenversicherung einbezahlt haben – bei Inhabern eines B-Ausweises werden dabei auch Zahlungen an eine Arbeitslosenversicherung in einem EU-/Efta-Land (zum Beispiel in seinem Heimatland) angerechnet. Sind diese Voraussetzungen erfüllt, gelten für ihn dieselben Bestimmungen wie für Schweizer.
