RAV entitlement if seeking employment in UK

Hi. I've read various threads concerning redundancy & RAV, but I haven't seen a specific thread on this situation.

I'm facing the possibility of being made redundant in CH, but if this happens it's most likely I'll be seeking a new job back in the UK.

I've been fully employed since moving to CH 3 years ago, with over 20 yrs of service in the same company (in various international locations). I have a local CH contract and B permit.

In this scenario, would I be entitled to still claim RAV even though my efforts will be directed towards finding new employment outside CH. Do I have to retain residence in CH to qualify and will I lose this entitlement if I move the family back to the UK after the terms of my current contract are served.

Re: RAV entitlement if seeking employment in UK

There are a couple of threads about this in the forum. One that is recent:

What happens > living in France, claiming unemployment from Switzerland, moving to UK

I've done it, it is possible. You must be an EU or Swiss citizen, moving to an EU country and have been collecting RAV for three months.

ETA: they also had no problem with me looking for work in the UK while resident in Switzerland and receiving unemployment monies there. As long as I was showing a real effort to get a job, they didn't care where it was located.
