ETS Association receives 4.7 million Euro in EU funding for the next phase of the European Tracking Service on Pensions


Date: 05/2024

The European Tracking Service (ETS) Association is proud to announce that it has been awarded with a grant of 4.7 million Euro from the European Union for the next phase of the European Tracking Service on Pensions. The so-called rollout phase is scheduled for five years. This funding was obtained through a successful project proposal submitted by the ETS Association in response to a Call for Proposals launched by the European Commission in 2023.

The aim of the ETS is to provide a comprehensive pension overview to employees who have worked in different countries in Europe. Through, users will be able to access their pension entitlements, regardless of the European country in which they have worked.

Members of the association which has been founded for this purpose are national tracking services and pension institutions from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden, as well as the European Association of Paritarian Institutions (AEIP). Other pension institutions of all pillars and tracking services are invited to participate.

The consortium partners are building on the results of the ETS Pilot Project that was co-funded by the European Union. From 2019 to 2022, the FindyourPension (FYP) website for mobile researchers was broadened and relaunched and the infrastructure for data transmission was developed. Belgium was the first country to be connected for a transmission of personal pension information to the ETS, creating a proof of concept. In the rollout phase, further existing national pension tracking systems are now to be connected so that indi-vidual pension information can be provided as comprehensively as possible.

This project is a fundamental contribution to a social and digital Europe, ensuring that mobile workers are not disadvantaged in accessing pension information compared to non-mobile workers. The possibility of a cross-border career is a cornerstone of the European Union. In the future, people who decide to work in different EU countries will be better supported in finding their pension entitlements and pension institutions via the website.
