Non EU on 1 yr renewable B Permit eligible for unemployment insurance

Hi All
After much frustration and many dead end searches and attemps Im wondering if anyone here has had a similar experience, can give me some concrete info or advice or put me in the direction of where I can find some accurate information.

Im a non EU national been here for 2.5 years on a B permit
As far as I can tell the B permit is linked to my employer and is renewable yearly
For the past 2.5 years I have been paying unemployment insurance.

As far as I understand one is eligible for unemployment insurance if you have a valid work permit and have been paying unemployment insurance for at least 12 months of the last two years

However here seems to be a catch
If I am no longer employed with my employer does my B permit automatically cease before the current renewal date because it is linked to my employer?

Does this mean Im not eligible for unemployment insurance, despite the fact ive been paying for it the last 2.5 years?

Or, can my B permit be extended whilst Im looking for work?

My employer has for the last 2.5 years told me Im eligible for unemployment insurance and has been making the deductions direct from my salary.
However, some recent enquiries Ive made indiate that Im not because of the apparent B permit issue.
Help...Im so confused!
