If you have credits in both the United States and the Netherlands, you may be eligible for benefits from one or both countries. If you meet all the essential requirements under a country`s system, you will benefit regularly from that country. If you don`t meet the basic requirements, the agreement can help you qualify for a performance, as explained below. New Zealand has social security agreements with Australia, Canada, Denmark, Greece, Jersey and Guernsey, Ireland and the United Kingdom. You must reapply for your benefit or pension in New Zealand as part of the corresponding agreement if you move to one of these countries. If you leave the Netherlands for a country with which New Zealand does not have a social security agreement, your New Zealand benefits or pensions will be suspended. Section 233 of the Amended Social Security Act [42 U.S.C. 433] authorizes us to collect this information. We use the information you provide to determine whether your current work should be covered only by the U.S. social security system, in accordance with a totalization agreement.
The information you provide on this form is optional. However, if we do not provide all or part of the requested information, we may not make a timely and accurate decision on your application for a coverage certificate. Without the certificate, current work can continue to be covered and taxed under U.S. and foreign social security plans. We will only use the information you provide on this form for reasons other than the ones described above. However, we can use it for the management and integrity of social security programs. We may also disclose information to another person or agency, in accordance with authorized routine uses, including: This report addresses aspects of the recently ratified social security agreement between the Netherlands and the People`s Republic of China (“China”), which will come into force on 1 September 2017. The agreement includes social security contributions (including Medicare`s U.S. share) as well as Social Security, Disability and Survivor Pension Benefits. It does not cover benefits under the U.S. Medicare program or the security supplement.
Note As shown in the table, an American worker employed in the Netherlands can only be covered by U.S. Social Security if he or she works for an American worker.
