To provide you a brief introduction to the future OOP scenario in social protection domain, we kindly ask you to watch the following video.

The data can be automatically stored in the central civil register in Austria and doesn’t need any manual actions. The Ministry of the Interior in Austria proceed relevant data including the ESSN to the Ministry of Finance in Austria (8). Then, Ministry of Finance delivers the social benefit (family allowance) to the parents (9).
If the Ministry of Interior in Austria wants to clarify with his counterpart in Germany about the authenticity of the birth certificate received data, they can use the Internal Market Information System (IMI) (7,10). The IMI-System is an online multilingual tool that helps authorities cooperate across border. It is accessible over the internet and at the same time it is secure and data protection friendly. The IMI has a multilingual directory of authorities, which works with pre-translated questions and answers.
European Social Security Number could help to identify mobile EU citizens and make it quick and easy to determine if, and what, social security coverage exists across-borders. ESSN aims to facilitate the mobility of workers and to combat social fraud. Initial canvassing of opinions shows that the initiative is welcomed by various social security organisations in the Member States. The ESSN would greatly simplify digitalisation between citizens and public authorities. It also has the potential to simplify and increase security of digitalisation between participating Member State authorities.
