Early C permit & chomage

Hi there! Maybe someone could advise me on the following? I and my husband are both non-EU citizens. My husband holds a B permit at the moment. I have a dependent permit (family re-union with activity). We both would like to stay in Switzerland and are planning to apply for an early C permit in two years.
I have been working for 2 years but now I have to leave my job due to relocation (we moved from Neuchatel to Zurich and it’s not possible for me to commute any more). I have already started to look for a new job but it will take some time. I have an option to apply for chomage/RAV during my search. As far as I know, you shouldn’t have applied for any social benefits if you want to get a C permit.
My question: Is chomage/RAV considered as a social benefit and can it affect getting C permit in the future? As I am dependent on my husband’s permit, is it only my husband who will be checked for not using any social benefits when applying for C permit?
Thanks in advance!
