Sorry to hear about your situation and the impact on you and your family. We have had people apply for the Art 50 EUV card while unemployed – your first priority if you are not already AMS registered would be to register with them. If you have been in this job for at least 6 months, your “employed” status is protected for at least 6 months, and AMS Arbeitslosengeld with not impact your application for the Art 50 EUV card – you will still be able to get the card. I’ve got your e-mail address from the site admin (I think we met at Vienna Expats once) – so will drop you a mail. In case you have difficulties with the registration authority for it, let me know, I am helping a number of people with help through the Embassy and the Ministry for the Interior.
Best regards, Mike (Bailey)
