Welcome to EESSI!
Greek Electronic Exchange of Social Security Information (EESSI)
Electronic Exchange of Social Security Information (EESSI)
EESSI is an IT system that helps social security institutions across the EU exchange information more rapidly and securely, as required by the EU rules on social security coordination.
At the moment most exchanges are paper-based: these are going to be replaced by electronic exchanges in the coming years, as Member States progress with connecting to EESSI.
Secure handling of personal data:
- EESSI will introduce the use of a common secure infrastructure for cross-border data exchange between social security institutions.
- It will enable message exchange between national institutions, but the system will not create a database to store such messages and personal data centrally. The content of the messages will only be available to the relevant institutions, and Member States will remain responsible to ensure a high standard of data protection, in line with EU rules.
- EESSI will follow the latest standards in IT security.
