If you work abroad you generally become no longer insured for general social facilities in ones own country. This can be properly arranged with the necessary E-forms. E-forms aim to facilitate cross-border contacts with and among the various social security bodies of the EER member-states. This means that you can use this form to transport your accrued rights from and to EER member-states. The forms have been renamed. The table below mentions the old and the new names.
There are different types of forms:
E-100 series: concerns benefits for sickness, pregnancy and secondment;
E-200 series: for calculating and paying (invalidity) pensions and dependents' benefits;
E-300 series: for all matters relating to unemployment benefits;
E-400 series: for entitlement to child benefit.
These forms are available from the various bodies in the own country.
