Slovakia - Social Security
Pensions, child benefits and illness contributions are covered under the umbrella of social security. Employment security primarily covers unemployment benefits. Employees and employers both are required to make contributions to the social security, health and employment security systems. In 2003, employees contributed 13.4% of their gross salaries toward these programs combined. Employers paid in 34.4% of gross salaries.

A foreign national who is currently contributing to the compulsory social security system of his or her home country is generally not required to pay Slovakian social security premiums, provided proof of foreign coverage is filed with the local social security office. Contact a Slovakian consular office for detailed information.
