Usefulness of the European social security pass compared to the European social security number

Question for written answer  E-003487/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Gabriele Bischoff (S&D)

The Commission has announced that it will no longer pursue the idea of a European social security number. It has instead launched a pilot project for a European social security pass (ESSPASS), as announced in the European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan in March 2021. The purpose of the pass, however, remains unclear. If it is only a means of identifying mobile workers, we would be missing an opportunity to launch an initiative that meets the needs of mobile workers and companies operating across borders and provide an effective means to collect real-time information, thereby preventing wage and social dumping.
