▼ Social benefits and services
▶ Services provided by the state
▶ Services provided by the local government
The Estonian National Social Insurance Board organises the payment of social benefits and the provision of services offered by the state to disabled people. The local government also provides many social services to its residents in need. In addition to the services required by law, the local government can offer additional benefits and services. The offer of these services and benefits depends on the possibilities offered by the local government. To find out more information about them, contact your city or rural municipality government.
