For this update, the information in Table III - Sickness – cash benefits has been extensively revised to ensure completeness and consistency of information across countries.


MISSOC (Mutual Information System on Social Protection) is an important online source of up-to-date comparable information on social protection systems in European countries. The information comes from a network of officials from national ministries and institutions responsible for administering social protection which is coordinated by the MISSOC Secretariat on behalf of the European Commission.

Please do not hesitate to contact the MISSOC Secretariat if you have questions on the information stored in the tables or any suggestions.
