I'm a Blue Card holder in Germany since October 2018, when I started working.
In 2019 I switched my employer without problems.
Unfortunately, in March of this year I was told my contract would be ended on 30th April due to Corona crisis. Since then, I started looking for a new job, but due to the situation the quest took longer than expected. This month I've got an offer from a good command, but the starting date will be on September 1st. The Ausländerbehörde has already issued a new Zusatzblatt authorising switching to the new employer at this date.
Now comes my issue: I've applied and have been granted the unemployment benefit (Arbeitslosgeld I) since May 1st. But the Blue card role says I can have it for three months at most:
I have requested an exceptional extension to the Arbeitsamt but they told that they cannot do anything to me in this case, as it would go against the Blue card rules. So what am I supposed to do to in August? Unfortunately I depend on the ALGI at the moment to the financial support of my family.
