The European Social Policy Network (ESPN) was established in July 2014 on the initiative of the European Commission to provide high-quality and timely independent information, advice, analysis and expertise on social policy issues in the European Union and neighbouring countries.

This analysis of current levels and past trends of social protection expenditure in Montenegro is based on the national data collected from the ministries and implementing agencies, since neither any other public data on Montenegro nor the European System of Integrated Social Protection Statistics (ESSPROS) database is available. Due to the limited scope of the data, the figures for pension expenditure include aggregated expenditure on old-age pensions, survivor and disability pensions. Data on other expenditure include three categories: social protection, unemployment and disability expenditure. The social protection category includes family support, child allowance, care of other persons, disability benefits, etc. Disability benefits refer only to expenditure from the fund for the professional rehabilitation of persons with disabilities.
