These agreements are known as Posting (of workers) Agreements and stipulate that employees who mainly work on behalf of their employer in the other Contracting State can avoid a double insurance situation and a double obligation to pay pension and unemployment insurance contributions. These agreements do not contain any further provisions regarding the establishment of pension entitlements or the payment of pensions.

What individuals are affected by the provisions of the agreements on social security?

The agreements on social security first and foremost contain provisions that only favour the nationals of the Contracting States. However - depending on the particular agreement – they may also be applicable to other people who are not nationals of the respective Contracting States.
