Aleksander Maziarz


Keywords: social security schemes, economic activity, solidarity principle

The aim of the article is to analyse conditions of application of EU State aid rules to social security schemes. First, the article will focus on conditions that classify activity of social security schemes as non-economic activity. Moreover, conditions determining that a scheme is based on the principle of solidarity will be analysed. Thirdly, the article will analyse how to classify a scheme when its activity is both based on the principle of solidarity and also has economic nature. The last part of the article will analyse the most recent case concerning State aid in the context of social security schemes - Dôvera zdravotná poistʼovňa v Commission.
Keywords: social security schemes; economic activity; solidarity principle.
