Luxembourg and the Philippines have signed a social security agreement, with special provisions for seafarers working on vessels bearing the flag of either territory.

The agreement applies to any person covered by the social security system of either nation. It guarantees equal treatment, transferability of contributions, consolidation of total contribution periods, and administrative collaboration between the authorities. A person may take a secondment to the other territory of up to 60 months while remaining within their home country's system.

Seafarers working on a ship flying the flag of either nation will remain under the social security system of their country of residence, according to the norms applied by the International Organization for Work (OIT).
