Regulations on Pension Provision also for Citizens Crossing National Boarders

Social security agreements between countries regulate the right to social security of persons moving between countries, as well as the countries’ liability to implement that right.

The social security of persons moving between EU Member States is governed by Regulation 883/2005 and the implementing Regulation 987/2009. The objective of the agreements and the EU regulation is to secure the continuity of social security for a person moving from one Member State to another. A further aim is to prevent situations in which a person is covered by two social security systems and has to pay double social security contributions.
