GN 01708.105 German Coverage Certifications

A. Policy

The German agencies certify their coverage on either form D/USA 5 (Agreement Between the FRG and the U.S. on Social Security) or on a computer printout, or both. A statement that no German coverage exists is acceptable if it is on a liaison form or on the official stationery of one of the German liaison agencies listed in GN 01708.025.

B. Description of form D/USA 5

  • The year for which coverage exists appears in the first column followed by the “from - to” period expressed in day/month format.

  • The “from” date is never earlier than January 1, 1937.

  • All coverage periods are wholly within a calendar year but more than one period may be reported in a calendar year.

  • The number of months in a period are shown in either the contribution period or substitute period columns.

  • The total coverage months for the period from 1937 through the last year of coverage, are displayed in the box following the list of coverage periods.
