Social Insurance System

Social Insurance Fund in Lithuania: “Sodra

Following the Law on Social Services of the Republic of Lithuania a foreign citizen, holding a permanent or temporary residence permit is entitled to the same social services in the Republic of Lithuania as a Lithuanian citizen.

What social guaranties can I expect?

Who is eligible for the Compulsory health insurance?(Lt: “PSD”)

- Foreigners permanently residing in LT:
Non-EU: Permanent residence permit
EU: Certificate confirming the right of permanent residence in LT (issued for 10 years)
- Foreigners temporarily residing in LT if legally employed (+ their kids)

If you are working under a working contract you are covered by all the social insurance types:

- Sickness insurance
- Maternity insurance
- Unemployment insurance
- Occupational accident insurance
- Pension insurance
- Health insurance

What if I’m not covered by PSD?

- Get a private health insurance (BTA, Gjensidige, Seesam, Ergo, Lietuvos draudimas, IF). Full list: http://www.draudikai.lt/en/insurers
- Pay each time you have to visit a doctor.
