Re: Struggling to survive entitlements

Justin, a resource that might be of help to you is Die Dargebotene Hand, a free advice line.

https://basel.143.ch/Beratung/Beratungsangebot

I know that the organization has some English speaking volunteers in other cities, but am not familar with the Basel group. If you do not speak German comfortably enough to talk freely on the phone, perhaps write and ask what the possibilities for English language advice are. According to their site, email inquiries can take 48 hours.

Hi everyone,

I have a very low wage it’s below 2000CHF after tax and after paying rent I barely have any money for food I barely eat some days.

Am I entitled to any social security as I’m poor here in Switzerland I’ve not been here long
It really depends on your nationality. Have not read any of the your other threads referred to, and your profile gives nothing away.

Do you have Swiss nationality? This will hopefully guide the answer to your question.

Yes, and I hate to spoil everyone’s fun - but anyone that has suffered from a intracerebral hemorrhage OP (brain hem as you described) might take offense to your posts.

Maybe, as some seem to think, Justin is a troll or fake. But just think about it: if he is for real then he is traumatised in more ways than one, and suffering from a range of debilitating ailments, some of which are in the known cluster associated with severe PTSD.

And even so he is still making the effort to work and earn his living as best he can with limited energy (and limited food) and to fulfil what the police require of him.

Despite what sometimes comes across here as his not implementing the various kinds of advice he has received on his threads, (not sure I could, were I to be walking a mile in his mocassins), and as exasperation and occasionally even rudeness (like the PM Curley mentioned) on Justin's part... the young man seems exhausted, frazzled, stressed and poor, and I think - given his very unfortunate set of life circumstances - he is rather to be admired for not giving up and just gone on the dole.

Here I agree 100% with MusicChick:


As I wrote on one of Justin's other threads:
I’m not saying he’s definitely not telling the truth..... but in this thread below, he says he works in business and must wear a suit. Then he claims not to make enough money to pay his health insurance and food. What kind of business job in Switzerland pays that little? It doesn’t add up!
https://www.englishforum.ch/general-...out-suits.html

Then despite saying he is miserable, has no friends, is depressed and is not earning enough money to live on..... he doesn’t want to leave Switzerland because it would mean “being attacked was for nothing” - I’ve never heard anything so bonkers!!!
