The United Kingdom and the Netherlands have both agreed to implement a transition law to establish that the EU social security rules for cross border situations will still apply for a period of 1 year after a no-deal Brexit.

Both countries will each implement a national law to avoid that individuals working in cross-order situations will be paying double social security contributions or no social security contributions at all, since the EU social security rules will no longer be applicable after a no-deal Brexit.

The Dutch national transition law will establish that the EU social security rules such as the EU 883/2004 Regulation, will still be applicable as if the United Kingdom would not have left the EU. A UK national transition law with similar content will be implemented as well. Both transition laws will be applicable for one year and it will see to existing cross-border situations as well as new cross-border situations that will be implemented after a no-deal Brexit.
