GN 01733.010 Overview of the Luxembourg Social Security System

   

Luxembourg provides retirement (old age), survivors, and disability (invalidity) benefits through a two-tier social insurance program.

  • The first tier pays benefits proportional to the total length of time the worker works in Luxembourg. The benefit equals 1/40 of a flat-rate amount for each year of the worker’s coverage up to 40 years.

  • The second tier pays earnings related benefits based on a percentage of the worker’s total lifetime earnings.

To qualify for Luxembourg benefits, a worker must meet certain coverage requirements that vary depending on the type of benefits. See GN 01733.020.
