Contributions - how many social security have I paid

Question

Hi I worked and was on maternity leave in Belgium for 2014. I need to find out how many contributions (number of weeks I paid social security) in order to assess if I am eligible for a payment in Ireland.
I can see how much I paid but now how many weeks this equates to
Anyone have any suggestions?

If you were working or on maternity throughout 2014, normally, that would be 52 weeks social security contribution.

That's about as good a guess as can be made from this information.

Your mutuelle should be able to tell you and, if they cannot, they should certainly be able to tell you where you can find the answer. They may even be able to liaise directly with the Irish authorities.

There are several standard European certificates to proof your right for social security. Depending on what type of allowance you're applying, one of these should apply http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/work/social-security-forms/index_en....

Once you know which certificate you need, you can find the issuing institution quite easily by googling. The most likely routes to follow are www.socialsecurity.be, mutuelle, your caisse d'allocation familiales (ask from your former payroll) or ONEM
