Twice on RAV in 5 years, extension on original period?

Hi all,

Here is my situation: I worked from 2017 to March 2019, and then I lost my job. I started a new position in Dec 2019 and worked until March 2021, when the new firm had a merger. Both times I registered with RAV.
The second time I was given a limited number of days, I have been effectively on the remainder of my previous unemployment benefit. I was told that the days run out end of this month.
In the last two years, I worked for around 15 months. Based on what I read, it is possible to apply for a new period of unemployment, and they will look back at the period. However, I did not receive a conclusive answer from RAV or from reading the threads here. I appreciate any tips to get me out of this Limbo.

It appears that the two-year Rahmenfrist (qualified period) is expiring. It can be possible to apply for a new qualified period. Your RAV adviser should be able to provide more information.

Also see para. B48 to B52 at this link for a discussion of a new qualified period (German):

Good luck with your job search!

Many thanks as you mentioned the original two year period is expiring and to my understanding, I qualify to apply for a new period.
I spoke to several people at RAV but they did not give me a solid answer they just said you can apply for a new period but having a wife and a child is frustrating not knowing.

Re: Twice on RAV in 5 years, extension on original period?

It seems counterintuitive, but the Rahmenfrist won't get restarted due to employment (there's a federal court ruling about that). So you can start a new Rahmenfrist with new conditions (new daily allowances, new Taggelder, new duration) after the old one runs out, effectively giving you the support longer.

Many thanks, Euler (Also compliments on the name)
So effectively, I need to apply for a new Rhmenfrist period. They will examine the case to see if, in the last two years, I have worked at least a year to start a new qualifying period. With any luck, I will receive more extended support for my job search from what I understood.

In my case, I am about to receive an offer, but the position will start in a few months, so more extended support will help. That being said, I have been gone to the last steps few times and things fell apart.

Since it is November already, I hope everything went well and you’re getting benefits inside the new Rahmenfrist, kaweco
