Chapter 10 Freedom of movement for persons with disabilities and coordination of social security within the EU
Restricted access

This contribution analyzes the European Union (EU) rules for the coordination of social security systems through the lens of persons with disabilities. These rules seek to facilitate free movement of persons by linking national social security systems to each other in such a way that those who move from one Member State to another remain subject to the social security legislation of one Member State and do not lose social security because they move from one Member State to another. The contribution focuses on benefit systems which have specifically been put in place for persons with disabilities or which are of special significance for them, namely sickness and invalidity benefits, special non-contributory cash benefits and long-term care benefits.
