HOME > INFORMATION BASE > SOCIAL SECURITY GUIDES
The Social Security Guides aim at explaining the national social protection systems in an accessible and easy-to-understand language to a broad audience, in particular citizens moving within Europe. The Guides provide a descriptive introduction and an overview of the main elements of the social protection branches in each country. They are complementary to the more detailed information in the MISSOC Comparative Tables, and follow a common structure. The Guides are updated on an annual basis with validated information for the situation on 1 July of each year. The 2013 edition of the Guides is available below.
