Registering with the french health care system as an EU citizen, NO employment yet, NO french residence yet


I plan on relocating to France as an EU citizen. Upon my arrival, I won't have a job yet, nor a permanent address.

The "Application for membership in the french health care system" asks for proof of employment (if employed), or proof of address at which I have resided for more than 3 months (if unemployed).

Given that I won't have either, am I correct to understand that I won't be able to apply right away?

If yes, can I apply for a job without having a social security number?

Any other information regarding steps to follow in my situation will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hello Elena,

If you do not work and live in France for less than 3 months, you can cannot apply to the health insurance.

However, if you benefits from rights or pension from a European country, you can claim for the form E106 (S1) to the National Health System of your country.

On receipt of form E106, please, provide CPAM with :

These documents permit us to affiliate you to our system and to take charge of your medical expenses. This follows the French legislation concerning reciprocity with your social security system, and for a period of time as indicated on the form E106 (S1).

Also, I confirm that as a European citizen, you are authorized to work in France even if you don't have a social security number.

I wish you a nice day.
