Preserving social security entitlements in the event of no-deal Brexit: Council approves draft contingency measures

The European Union is taking measures to safeguard the social security rights of citizens of EU member states in the UK and UK nationals in the EU 27 who have benefited from the right of free movement before the UK’s withdrawal from the Union.

Today, member states’ ambassadors in the Council’s Permanent Representatives Committee approved the text of a draft regulation on establishing contingency measures in the field of social security coordination. Coreper will now inform the European Parliament that if it adopts its position at first reading in the same form, the Council should be able to approve the European Parliament’s position.
