The examples illustrate how and who completes the e4962 in the following hypothetical
Example 1: Uninsured worker
An uninsured worker visits an FO on November 7, 1993 and files concurrent RSDI or
Totalization claims for both U.S. and German retirement benefits. DIO receives the
claim on December 5, 1993.
Since the CTE or CR is establishing this record for the first time, indicate transaction
A. The CTE or CR is able to record complete information in parts II, III, and IV.
However, the CTE or CR cannot complete information in parts V and VI at this time.
After you complete the action on the RSDI claim, prepare the claims package for the
German agency and a request for the German earnings record. On December 20, 1993,
the CTE or CR (foreign only) releases the package to the BfA in Germany. Since the
e4962 completed by the CTE or CR established the record, the CTE or CR now prepares
a transaction C form to update the record with the new information.
When you receive the development, add the receipt date for the development requested
from the foreign agency (block C in Part V) and the U.S. Totalization claim authorization
date, and TSC in Part VI to the program. In the meantime, the TDCP carries the record
as a pending item.
On April 19, 1994, you receive the requested earnings record from the BfA and, on
May 28, 1994, the CTE awards U.S. Totalization benefits. Utilizing transaction C,
the CTE now records the receipt date in Part V and the final status of the U.S. Totalization
claim in Part VI.
Example 2: Insured worker
Same as in EXAMPLE 1, except that the worker is insured based on U.S. coverage. On
December 17, 1993, the CTE recognizes the denied Totalization claim (TSC D3) and records
the data in Part VI.
On January 7, 1994, the BET or CR (foreign only) prepares the claims package for the
German agency; but since the worker is insured, there is no need to request a German
earnings record. The data previously coded by the CTE is correct, and the U.S. authorization
was included. Therefore, the BET or CR (foreign only) can prepare a transaction C
form to indicate the date the package was sent.
