Default Unemployment benefit

Hi.
My workplace has closed down for a few months and I have been told I can claim unemployment benefit.
I have been on a contract for 5 years and have been on a indefinido contract since February.
I know which office I need to go to. My Spanish isn't that fantastic but I can get by if I know what I'm asking for. I know I need to make an appointment online but not sure what for.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I believe what you want is called a prestación por desempleo. This might help? It has an online appointment service (can't guarantee it will work though!)

Thats working days (correct Gus ?)
My local INSS office has one of those phone shops nearby where you can call abroad/fax etc & they are well used to booking appointments for people online for less that aEuro.

I went online to book the appointment and the earliest available appointment is 28th November at which point my 14 days will have lapsed. Bit unsure of what to do now. The man in the office told me to book appointment online. Feel like I'm in a catch 22 situation.

so just go to the office.....

our INSS has an appointmnets system - but if you just turn up & explain, and are prepared to wait (take a book) then you'll be seen (eventually)

Thats OK as its noted when you booked the appointment, so that is the date you made your claim, print off the booking details & keep.

Not sure whether it is working days , which would make sense, or calendar days.

Please make sure that they give you the proper finiguito that should add up to quite a lot of money if theyre essentially sacking you. I think its 20 odd days per year worked plus off course any holidays you havent had.

You will need two appointments, one to register as unemployed and the other for the paperwork regarding the 'paro'.

Here in Valencia won't see you without appointment, no matter how silly the question might be, they won't help you at all. We need appointments for SERVEF and for SEPE.

I am not sure about Benalmadena, but you can try and go to their offices to register as Unemployed first and then you can ask them about the other appointment, I believe they take into account the date of the appointment.

I've had a look at the INEM SAE and apparently you don't need appointment to register as unemployed. The INEM SAE is for registering, hand in paperwork, etc and the INEM SEPE is for the unemployment helps, although they are both in the same building, they are different bodies dealing with different things.

... and it is 15 days no counting SUNDAYS.
