The number of Italian QC's is equivalent to 95 weeks = 7 QC's +4 weeks = 8 QC's

The U.S. earnings record shows the following QC breakdown:

•

1950   N F F F

1951   F F F F

1952   F N N N

## B. U.S. QCs are present

From

TO
Number of Weeks of Coverage

6/15/50 09/21/52   95 OBG

The number of Italian QC's is equivalent to 95 weeks = 7 QC's +4 weeks = 8 QC's

13 weeks

There are two U.S. QCs posted in the first and second quarters of 1952. Since Italian QCs cannot be credited to quarters which are U.S. QCs, they will be posted to the next available quarter(s) within the period of coverage. In this example, the last 4 weeks of Italian coverage are posted to the third quarter of 1952.

1951   F F F F

1952   C C F N

If U.S. QCs had been posted to the first three quarters of 1952, the last 4 weeks of Italian coverage could not be credited since the period of coverage ends in the third quarter of 1952.

## C. No U.S. QCs - Two periods of Italian coverage credited to the same quarter

A coverage certification which shows one period ending and another period beginning in the same calendar quarter may be correct as recorded. To properly credit Italian coverage, credit each period separately. Only one Italian QC is credited for the quarter where the two periods coincide.

Periods: 1. 01/01/66 - 04/30/68 122 ART
2. 05/01/68 - 12/31/68  35 ART

The number of Italian QC's for period 1 is equivalent to 122 weeks = 9 QC's +5 weeks = 10 QC's;

13 weeks

for period 2, it is equivalent to 35 weeks = 2 QC's +9 weeks = 3 QC's.

## D. No U.S. QCs - Coinciding periods of Italian coverage

This situation can be identified by the presence of overlapping dates for different periods of Italian coverage, as shown in example 1. It could also happen that one of the coinciding periods is wholly within the other period, as shown in example 2. In any case where there are coinciding periods of Italian coverage, each period must be credited to the extent possible.

Example 1:

From       To Weeks of
Coverage
Kind
Periods: 1. 03/15/62 - 07/21/63  73 OBG 19, 300L
2. 06/05/63 - 10/15/63  16 OBG 41,900L

The number of Italian QC's for period 1 is equivalent to 73 weeks = 5 QC's +8 weeks = 6 QC's;

13 weeks

for period 2, it is equivalent to 16 weeks = 1 QC's +3 weeks = 2 QC's.

13 weeks

Crediting:

•

1962   F1 F1 F1 F1

1963   F1 F1 F2 N

(F2)

Since Italian coverage overlaps in the second quarter of 1963, only one Italian QC is credited for that quarter.

Example 2:

From       To Weeks of
Coverage
Kind
Periods: 1. 01/05/39 - 12/30/39 21 OBG
2. 04/06/39 - 08/22/39 18 SM

The number of Italian QC's for period 1 is equivalent to 21 weeks = 1 QC +8 weeks = 2 QC's;

13 weeks

for period 2, it is equivalent to 18 weeks = 1 QC +5 weeks = 2 QC's.

13 weeks

Crediting:

•

1939 F1 F1 F2 N

(F2)

Since Italian coverage overlaps in the second quarter of 1939, only one Italian QC is credited for that quarter.
