The Belgian social insurance number consists of 8 or 9 digits which are assigned as follows:

  • Digits 1-2 represent the year of birth;

  • Digits 3-4 represent the month of birth;

  • Digits 5-9 are chronologically assigned.

B. Process

  • The Belgian social insurance number is used to control retirement and survivor claims.

  • The social insurance number is not used for invalidity claims. A separate number is assigned for these claims. If the disabled person dies, the survivor claim is controlled under the widow's own social insurance number.
