Which authority will help me send a claim to another EU country?
Social Insurance Board
Telephone: +372 612 1360
Fax: +372 640 8155
The deciding authority is the Social Insurance Board together with its local pension departments. You will soon be able to find information on local pension departments on this page.
What is the role of the assisting authority?
To assist in completing and submitting applications for compensation and supporting documents to the competent authority of another country.
Will this authority translate the supporting documents, if the outgoing claim needs this? If so, who pays for this?
If a person approaches the competent authority of another country directly, the costs will be borne by that person. If the documents are submitted via the Social Insurance Board, the required forms will be completed and an unofficial translation will be enclosed, if necessary. The translation service will be paid for by the Social Insurance Board.
Are there administrative or other charges to be paid when a claim is sent abroad?
