On 02/12/2015, the Brazilian government’s Official Gazette published Federal Decree No.  8405/2015, enacting the Social Security Agreement entered into between Brazil and Belgium.

The Decree creates the possibility to temporarily assign employees to the other Contracting State while keeping them subject to the social security legislation of their country of origin, as if they continued to be employed in its territory.

In addition, with regard to social security benefits, the Decree allows the contribution periods completed in both countries to be added, provided that they are not concurrent.

The Decree safeguards entitlements to death pension and disability or old-age retirement, regardless of the beneficiary’s nationality.
