Hi, could anyone give me some simple advice, how does the social security system work in Czech Rep. for expats who come from other EU-countries. Me and my partner are planning to moving in the future to Czech, and I am wondering how it will go if we have kids / we will have kids at that time. I found following info: "Monetary aid in maternity is paid out to a woman employee if she had been a sickness insurance policyholder for at least 270 days in the last two years before she gave birth (this period also includes previous periods in the last two years before she gave birth, in which the woman received sickness benefits or monetary aid in maternity or was a policyholder in sickness insurance of self-employers or was registered with the register of job-seekers in the Czech Republic etc.)" So if I move to Czech Rep. when I am pregnant or will get pregnant soon after my arrival, am I not entitled to any monetary aid when having a baby? Of course my partner will work, but I would like to know am I entitled to some social security. I am working at the moment and paying social security to another EU-country. Does anyone know do they count this? I've understood that they try to make EU as one big area where you're entitled to social security even when changing location between countries, but I am not sure how this actually goes... I am happy for all the direct tips as well as some links to web pages that might help!!!
