These are the only U.S. quarters of coverage that the agency will consider. To identify
the NH's U.S. underground mine employment, the claimant must submit a certificate
from the employer which shows the dates of each period the NH worked in an underground
mine, and the kind of material mined; e.g., hard coal, ore, gypsum, graphite, etc.
Forward the original employer's certificates to the German miner's agency and prepare
certified copies for the totalization folder. DO NOT PREPARE PHOTOCOPIES OF PHOTOCOPIES.
DO NOT SEND THESE DOCUMENTS TO CTS.
