European Parliament Economy

Requirement that Dutch citizens return to the Netherlands in connection with sudden claims to benefits from certain types of collective insurance

   Thu 16/03/2000

Is the Commission aware of the practical effects on Dutch citizens of KB 746, which requires them to move back to the Netherlands if they wish to continue to benefit from certain types of collective insurances?

Does the Commission agree that this constitutes a de facto restriction on the free movement of persons in the European Union?

What steps will the Commission take to ensure that Dutch citizens can continue to reside in the place of their choosing in the European Union without incurring undue and unforeseen costs as a result of the new legislation?
