Unemployment benefits + second pillar question

my wife who is Swiss has been working (always in CH) since the age of 16, now she is 40 ish. obviously over the years she has accumulated money in her pension fund. Our baby was born a couple of months ago. after maternity leave + holidays, she reduced her work load to 40% but because it was proving to be a challenge , she decided to quit her job to become a stay at home mom at-least for next few years. Her work contract finishes end of April.

Now given the situation, i have few questions.
1. Can my wife ask for unemployment benefits ? She quit her job due to family reasons.

2. What can we do about the pension fund so that it continues to grow during the time she is unemployed? I found VIAC to be interesting in this area, chatting with one of their customer service executive i was informed that one could invest in a variety of instruments and for each 10K invested, 2.5K is protected. any other advise or providers to consider here ?

3. What additional insurance should we consider to subscribe, in the case of death/disability/sickness/accident ?
