A European Alliance In Social Insurance

The development of the European Single Market and in particular the free movement of citizens across the European Union call for greater cooperation between national social insurance systems. To this end, the European Social Insurance Platform was created in 1996 and since January 2009, ESIP exists as a legal entity under Belgian law.

Today ESIP as a strategic platform gathers 45 national social security organisations insuring citizens in 17 Member States and Switzerland. ESIP covers various branches of social insurance including health, pensions, family and social inclusion, disability and rehabilitation and unemployment.

Our missions:

  • Preserving high-profile social security for Europe
  • Reinforcing solidarity-based social insurance systems
  • Maintaining the quality of European social protection
