Luxembourg -Cross-border workers contribute more -May 21, 2015

Cross-border workers pour more money into the social contributions funds than they get out.

Analysts at the statistical office Statec examined the aspect of cross-border work from a balance of payments’ point of view. They studied the social payments of the 163,912 cross-border workers registered as working in Luxembourg in 2014. In the report (available only in French) it is said that cross-border workers pour more money into the social contributions funds than they get out. While 8 billion euro leave the Grand Duchy in salaries, these workers and their employers paid 1.8 billion euro in social payments while the benefits and health treatment they received amounted to just 1.63 billion euro.
