The Court of Justice has recently rendered four judgments (C-302/19; C-94/20; C-350/20; C-462/20) concerning the access to social security and social assistance for third-country nationals. In the recent years, there have been attempts by some Member States to restrict or exclude access to social security or social assistance for third-country nationals. The goal of this paper is not only to inform the reader about the Court of Justice’s judgments but also to put those judgments in perspective with previous cases as well as to discuss potential future EU legislative responses to it.
