Contributions - how many social security have I paid


Hi I worked and was on maternity leave in Belgium for 2014. I need to find out how many contributions (number of weeks I paid social security) in order to assess if I am eligible for a payment in Ireland.
I can see how much I paid but now how many weeks this equates to
Anyone have any suggestions?


If you were working or on maternity throughout 2014, normally, that would be 52 weeks social security contribution.

That's about as good a guess as can be made from this information.
