Extending chomage indemnitie days

Has anyone successfully convinced Chomage office that they should extend the indemnitie days? I ask as I worked in Switzerland up to April 2014, then in the UK for 1 year and back here as of April 2015 unemployed. Looks like I only get 1 year coverage.

Not to my knowledge. How many days do you get? More than the maximum amount of days will not be granted to start with. After that it is Sozialhilfe I think.

Not if you own a house.

Re: Extending chomage indemnitie days

Now thatīs for sure! You need to "eat up" all your savings etc up to a certain amount before you get Sozialhilfe

Re: Extending chomage indemnitie days

As long as it is RAV/chomage not, but as soon as you need Sozialhilfe you would not get anything if you have a house (no idea though what the ruling is if this is shared ownership).

Social aid will take into account the income and wealth of both parties, married or not.

Re: Extending chomage indemnitie days

and of course any social help will have to be repaid once you get a job or come into any money, like any inheritance, etc.

Depends on the canton.

In Ticino, usually not, unless the inheritance is very large, or the job pays more than 10k/month.
