joint ETUC ETUFs logos

(7 April 2021) Ahead of the European Social Summit (7-8 May), European unions call upon the European Commission to launch the European Social Security Pass (ESSP) and to do so next year. The ESSP should include a European Social Security Number (ESSN) for all workers in the EU to improve the portability of social security benefits and rights and the cross-border verification of social security coverage.
