Social security

Social security

If your employees work outside their country of residence, they will no longer be covered by the social insurance scheme of that country. Instead, your employee will be insured in the country of work. If your employees start working for you (your company) outside the country of residence temporarily, they will normally continue to be socially insured in their country of residence.


The A1 certificate identifies which social security system applies to the holder of the form. In the European social security regulations, the following ‘rules’ apply:

  • A person can only be subject to the social security system of one of the EER member states, AND
  • the employee will only pay social security premiums (including health insurance) in that particular country.


An A1 certificate will be issued by  European country in which the employee pays social security contributions in the country of residence for at least one month. An A1 certificate is proof that the employee does not need to pay social security contributions in the country of work, and it confirms that the employee remains socially insured in his/her country of residence. It is amongst others this expertise that we foster to be able to  make a  difference to employees and clients alike.
