Social Security Law

A first aspect of Social Security law is related to the conditions under which a person is entitled to benefits guaranteed by the Belgian system of social security :

  • Unemployment benefits
  • Compensation in case of an accident at work or occupational diseases
  • Financial compensation in case of accident and illness during the private life
  • Retirement and survival pension

A second aspect concerns the financing of the social security system by paying social security contributions (remuneration and/or benefits subject to social security contributions) and their exceptions or derogations (reduction of social security contributions and benefits not subject to social security contributions).

The Law firm Gaillard, Delwiche & Degouis assists both parties in this matter : the socially insured persons in order to allow them to obtain the social security benefits to which they are entitled, as well as the debtors of payment of social security contributions, in their litigations against the RIZIV or any other agency of payment or recovery.
