Swiss Citizenship Question! Please help!

Hi All,
Have a Swiss Citizenship query that I would much appreciate any help with.

how good/bad/indifferent is the arbeitsloss situation?
Is it a big NO NO for your chances of the citizenship? even if you are otherwise highly qualified and likely to be employed soon?

Would much appreciate any clarification!

Cheers

Obtaining Swiss citizenship is usually predicated on not having received social welfare. However, unemployment insurance benefits (ALV) are not considered social welfare.

Re: Swiss Citizenship Question! Please help!

Hi, thank you.
My point exactly -- however, even though it is considered insurance which you have legitimately paid into, can it still be a sticking point with the no-nonsense swiss -- who are very particular about even the names of all the flowers being grown in your gemeinde?

Re: Swiss Citizenship Question! Please help!

I have heard of cases which were refused because the applicants could not plainly demonstrate that they were self-supporting. This included any kind of pay-out which was currently been drawn, or which had been drawn previously. Big exception: disability pension or old-age pension.

I've been told by unsuccussful applicants that the list detrimental to naturalisation includes
- social security benefits (Sozialamt)
- medical insurance premium subsidies (Prämienverbilligung) and, yes,
- unemployment benefits.

Unemployment benefit is insurance like old age or disability pension, so not an issue.
