Comparative Social Security Benefits Study
Deloitte announced for the first time the results of its European social security study. This large-scale study created in collaboration with Filip van Overmeiren, lawyer at Laga, compares the different social security systems in 26 European countries.
The study shows that whilst Belgium has a sound social protection model, employees in Belgium still proportionately pay higher contributions. Furthermore, Belgium has not yet played a pioneering role in the drive to reform social security. Trying to go along with the European trend seems to be the sole ambition at this time.
