Multilingual information

Dear Visitors, the Main Association of Austrian Social Security Organisations regularly publishes a special edition of the journal Soziale Sicherheit (Social Security) in the summer months. This contains important information on Austrian social security, the benefits provided and the current legal situation. An English version of various chapters of our most recent special edition can now be downloaded together with other useful information. Our aim is to offer our international visitors an up-to-date insight into the Austrian social security system. We hope this will provide answers to some of the questions on the wide variety of benefits provided by our system, which for over a hundred years has successfully provided protection against a diversity of the risks encountered during life. The system provides insurance cover to almost 8 million people in Austria.
