Printed in Germany WHY THIS GUIDE?
The purpose of this guide is to provide you with easily understandable information about your rights and ob­
ligations in the field of social security. It describes the relevant Community provisions (Part I) as well as the
national legislations (Part II).
The information and references provided by this guide may be of use to you whenever you have to deal with
the social security system of another Member State. This could be the case perhaps when exercising a pro­
fessional activity abroad, taking up residence elsewhere in the European Union or simply during a temporary
stay in another Member State.
Consequently, we strongly recommend that, before moving to another country in the European LJnion, you
familiarize yourself thoroughly with the appropriate chapters of this guide. By doing so, you will safeguard
against losing part, or all, of your social security rights because of unfamiliarity with foreign legislation.
Do bear in mind, however, that the guide gives only a general overview. It is not exhaustive and cannot be
treated as an authoritative statement on any particular case. Do not hesitate, therefore, to contact the insti­
tutions listed in the guide for more detailed information.
