B permit expires & job contract ends in few weeks

Hi there,

I am in a bad situation because of my own fault. I want to know if there is any solution to get out of this mess Im in. My B permit (2015-2020) expires next month and I applied for renewal a month ago and its still in process. They asked me several job related documents as my Job contract ends in 2 months. My temp employer hasn`t been able to find a new contract yet and I assume as my B permit expires next month and job contract in two months - they might not issue me any permit - not even L permit as UK citizens (at least during the Brext transition period) don`t need work permit for jobs < 3 months .

I`m desperately searching for a new job. I attended couple of interviews last month and was hoping to get one of those jobs, but unfortunately they didn`t select me.

I don't want to move abroad at the moment as my girlfriend for past 5 years lives here and she wants me to stay closer to her.

I have contributed taxes for more than 22 months in last 2 years, so I thought I was eligible for RAV benefits for 400 days, but not sure if that applies once the permit expires (I think the Brexit transition period ends in November).

Given the situation I`m in, in case they don`t renew my permit, is it possible to request for job seeker permit or a permit based on savings in my bank account?

It appears you have the right to a 6 months job seeker permit.

You are entitled to a permit based on your money from RAV. You need to sign up to RAV now, whilst you still have a valid permit.

Hello, if you are an EU citizen, you should know that renewing your permit should be quite easy - they could issue a permit for one year only if you were out of employment for 12 consecutive months. Otherwise, you should receive another 5-year permit. If you are not an EU citizen, you should check if the same applies to you too.
