GN 01705.214 Evidence of Italian Military Service
As explained in GN 01705.212.A., Italy grants deemed periods of coverage for Italian military service. Proof of military service creditable under the Italian system is always needed in connection with a claim for Italian benefits.
Note: A discharge certificate (Foglio di congedo illimitato) is not sufficient since it does not provide a complete record of the military service.
If the Foglio matricolare ecaratteristico is not available, have the applicant sign a separate statement (i.e., not in the “Remarks” section of the application) authorizing INPS to obtain a complete record of the military service from the Italian military authorities.
