Unemployment benefit on L permit?

A very Good Friday afternoon everyone

I had a quick search and could not find an answer to the above question.

I am an IT contractor on an L permit (British citizen) and my original contract was for 12 months, and I have about 6 months left. I have been paying all kinds of tax, pension, insurance (about a third of my pay in total) through my agency. Questions:

If I don't have a job at the end of my contract, do I qualify for any benefits while in Switzerland?
Am I even allowed to stay here while job hunting?
Will I be able to take my pension money home if I went back to UK?
Could my agent have got me B permit, knowing my contract was 12 months? Seems like a nicer piece of paper to hold - not sure.

Responses to any of the above would be much appreciated.

Re: Unemployment benefit on L permit?

a) see the EU permits thread, you're EU so you can stay in theory
b) RAV registration and benefit payable.
