If citizens migrate for work, it is necessary to know in which State they will be insured for the purposes of pension, sickness, and health insurance. This is governed by the social security legislation of the Member State that has been identified as applicable in accordance with Regulations (EC) Nos 883/2004 and 987/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The national  legislation governs then the payment of insurance premiums and benefits. See more at https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/work/unemployment-nd-benefits/country-coverage/index_en.htm

The above-mentioned Regulations contain a number of rules for determining  legislation applicable and there are designated institutions in each country that decide on their application. In the Czech Republic, in the case of active persons, i.e. all employees and self-employed persons, these are the Czech Social Security Administration and the District Social Security Administrations.
