Carte de legitimation - I pay AVS, chomage - right to chomage?

Hi there!

I work for an international organisation where I pay taxes -- that is I pay chomage and AVS (I have my card). I've been doing this for over a year now.

My question is can I have unemployment/chomage benefits with a carte de legitimation, since I'm paying it every month?

If not, what happens to all the taxes I've been paying?

I've combed through the Office cantonal de l'emploi website for answers and other resources but my particular case is never covered. Please help!!! Thanks you!

I was told by a recruiter that unemployment benefits can only be paid out at 80% IF one has worked at least 12 months during a 24 month period (not sure about the 24 months as I did not pay too much attention to that particular part)...

Correct, and additionaly it's 80% of last salary if you're with kids/spouse, and 70% if you're single.

...with a cap at around CHF 8,500 (not sure of the exact cap but someone on here will know). Point is, if you were a super-duper earner, you will be taking a hefty cut on unemployment benefit.

The old cap was 8.5 it's now nearer 10.5k a month. However on earnings of that sacle you will have a working period of at least 25 working days.
