The International Relations Unit (IRU) mainly deals with all benefits under all bilateral agreements, international agreements and covenants which the Department of Social Security has entered into, and EU Regulations (EC) Nos. 883/2004 and 987/2009 on the coordination of social security systems.  Basically, the IRU acts as the point of reference for all EU and international affairs related issues.​​
