Luxembourg's Ministry of Social Security confirmed today that the Grand Duchy and France have agreed to extend their agreement on cross-border workers' social security affiliation for teleworking, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, until 30 September 2021.

The derogatory provisions which would have ended on 30 June are thus maintained until the end of September 2021. The chosen date (30 September) corresponds with the end of the state of emergency linked to the health crisis in France.

This agreement avoids a change of affiliation if the 25% threshold provided for in European legislation is exceeded for the workers concerned. Concretely, this means that a cross-border worker residing in France who carries out his / her work from home due to the pandemic continues to be affiliated to the Luxembourg social security system.
