Latest update of the MISSOC information (as of January 2017) on national social protection systems now available

Updated information on social protection systems in all EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland – including brief descriptions of their organisation and summaries of the social protection of the self-employed – is now available in English, French and German on our social protection systems page.

For this update, the information in Table IV “Maternity/Paternity” and Table IX “Family benefits” has been revised extensively to make it more complete and consistent 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.
