What Benefits will EESSI Brink?

What benefits will EESSI bring?

Faster and more efficient message exchange between social security institutions:

  • EESSI will speed up exchanges between national authorities. It will allow them to handle individual cases more quickly, and facilitate a faster calculation and payment of benefits.

More accurate data exchange between national authorities:

  • Social security institutions across the EU will use standardised electronic documents translated into their own language, improving multilingual communication.
  • EESSI will introduce safeguards to ensure that the data exchanged is correct and complete, helping institutions to combat fraud and error.
  • EESSI will optimise case handling, introducing standard electronic procedures to be followed by institutions; this will further enhance the correct application of social security coordination rules.

How does EESSI work?

All communication between national institutions on cross-border social security files will take place through EESSI: social security institutions will exchange structured electronic documents and follow commonly agreed procedures. These documents will be routed through EESSI to the correct destination in another Member State.
Staff in social security institutions will be able to find the correct destination in another EU country using a repository of national institutions.

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.
