The European Association of Paritarian Institutions (AEIP)

Founded in 1996, is a Brussels-based advocacy organization representing the Social Protection Institutions established and managed by employers and trade unions on a jointly basis within the framework of the collective agreements

All AEIP members are non-for-profit and cover a number of social protection benefits:

  • Coordinated retirement schemes

  • Occupational pension funds

  • Complementary healthcare insurance

  • Long-term care

  • Health & Safety at work

  • Paid holidays

  • Unemployment benefits

AEIP promotes social security and protection at the European level. It monitors, influences and sometimes opposes the European laws making process on the interests of its members and according to its positions. The Association works in close cooperation with the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Economic and Social Committee.

Besides, the Association is member of a number of EU Consultative Groups, such as the European Commission’s Pension Funds and the EU Joint Action on Health workforce Planning and Forecasting. The AEIP Secretary General is also member of European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority’s (EIOPA) Occupational Pension Stakeholders Group (OPSG).

With its many members (from 27 countries) and its broad network (with universities through protocols of cooperation and Global Pension Alliance with foreign countries – including Canada, Japan and the United States of America), AEIP aims at becoming a key player ensuring the defence, promotion and sustainability of paritarian social and social protection schemes in Europe.
