Frequently asked questions

What does social security coordination mean?

Each country is free to decide who is insured under its laws, what rights arise from insurance and under what conditions. The European Union defines common rules, under which the social rights of workers are protected (in EU and EEA Member States, and in Switzerland). To that end, the following principles are upheld: the application of the laws of one country, equal treatment (non-discrimination), the consideration of previous periods of insurance and the transferability of rights (i.e. the exportability of a cash benefit), and the calculation of benefits.
 

What needs to be arranged after I arrive in Slovenia?

After you arrive in Slovenia, you must register your residence. You must obtain a personal identification number (EMŠO) and tax number, and open a transaction account. Citizens from EU or EEA Member States and Switzerland do not need a work permit to work in Slovenia. However, the process still differs for Croatian citizens as Slovenia has introduced a 2-year transition period (from 1st of July 2013 till 30th of June 2015)  ans also a 3-year transition period (from 1st of July 2015 till 30th of June 2018) for the employment and work of Croatian citizens in Slovenia. This means that the Croatian citizens need to obtain work permit. Registration for employment is carried out by your employer.
 

What is EURES?

EURES is the abbreviation for "EURopean Employment Services", a network of public European employment services and their national partners. EURES functions in the Member States of the EU and the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein) and in Switzerland. The aim of the EURES network is to support the free movement of workers and promote international worker mobility in member states.

In addition to formal education, an employer also takes into account a candidate's competences, skills and additional knowledge.
