The Au pair insurance and travel expenses

the insurance (accident, health and liability) of the au pair will be paid by the host family.
The family is responsible for travel to and from Luxembourg.

Social and health insurance
In Luxembourg, au pairs need to be covered by the Luxembourgish social security in case of illness and accident. Your family is, therefore, required to register you with the Communal Centre of Social Security (CCSS). As you do not receive a substantial amount of money, your host family is responsible for the fees of your membership.

It is obligatory for the au pair to follow a language course for foreigners or a Luxembourgish culture and civilisation course. You are responsible for the costs of this course. Language courses are offered by universities, evening schools, as well as by other educational institutions. You should help your au pair to choose a course for a year, a semester or a summer, according to the duration of their stay.

The payment is made every month no matter how long the possible period of inactivity of the au pair (for example through illness or holiday). The pocket money is not subject to taxation or social security, which applies to salaries.
