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 are updated on an annual basis with validated information for the situation on 1 January of each year. The latest edition of the guides is available in English, French, German and in the country’s own language(s) on the website of the European Commission, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.
