RAV for 1 month

Hi,

I have a question regarding RAV that I cannot find anything about when I search around here on the forum.

If I would have to quit my current job and I know that I might be able to sign a new job contract 1-2 months after my ending date, would I be able to be on RAV for those 1-2 months?

Cheers

If you quit, you probably have to wait three months at least.

If you quit your job, you will be penalized by a certain waiting period on RAV (not sure how long exactly), which in your case might be longer than unemployment length of 1-2 months depending on circumstances of termination. The best solution overall for an employee is not to quit but become redundant. Having said that I don’t suggest anything.

Re: RAV for 1 month

Ok, let me rephraise that. I'm on a contract currently that will end because my mission here is done. So the company won't extend me further. My last day is the end of september.

I'm searching for jobs and might eventually and hopefully land a job with a starting date in november or december. Which means that I will be without a job/salary for 30-60 days in that case.

Let's play with the thought that I will land a job with the starting date of 1st of november, that menas 30 days without salary. Would it still be wise to sign up for RAV for those 30 days then?

Re: RAV for 1 month

A key item to consider when registering for RAV for a short time is "waiting days". The number of waiting days depends on whether the applicant has dependents and the applicant's previous income. For applicants without dependents and with a high income, it might not be worthwhile to register for RAV. More information on waiting days is at FAQ 11 at this link (English):

Re: RAV for 1 month

No matter how short I would go on the RAV.

While you work you are in the SUVA (i think that is what its called), accident insurance. Like if you fall from a ladder, that is covered by this one. When in the RAV you are also in this insurance.

If you are unemployed and not in the RAV you do not have accident insurance ! And you have to arrange one yourself. For this reason alone I would go in the RAV if I were you.

Re: RAV for 1 month

Accident insurance can be included in the Krankenkasse, just call them up when you are unemployed for more then 30 days (until then the one from the previous employer is still covering in most cases) and it's not really expensive, like 15-20 CHF a month IIRC.

Earlier this year, I signed up for RAV/Arbeitslosenkasse for "self-inflicted" unemployment (I was terminated because of a failed salary renegotiation), just in case, and I wouldn't do it again. For me it was time consuming to have job interviews for jobs that I wasn't interested in when I was certain to find a job anyway. And those recruiters I dealt with that found me on some RAV specific platforms seemed to have the attitude that I'm very much in need of a job and treated me like a child/retard. The RAV Berater was in the loop and I couldn't just not answer anymore if I wanted to stay eligible for money down the line (but I stopped giving a shit when I was supposed to fill a long form writing about projects I did in the past etc. for some terrible position far far away).

If you have money to cover 3 months of spending and are reasonably confident in finding something I wouldn't recommend going there.

Re: RAV for 1 month

A lot of good insights on why you should sign up for RAV for such a short time as well as choosing to cover yourself for a short amount of time if you believe you will find a new job within 3 monhts. Thanks. I will propably choose to cover myself and I believe I will find a new job shortly.
