GN 01710.015 How the FSP Processes and Develops Claims Filed with the Swiss Agency

A. Introduction

When a claim for U.S. benefits is filed with the Swiss agency, that agency routes Form CH/USA 3 (U.S.-Swiss Agreement on Social Security Transmittal Request Form) to the FSP, along with the Swiss coverage record.

B. Procedure

Follow the procedures below which explain how the FSP should process referrals from the Swiss agency.

1. Claimant not entitled to U.S. benefits

Obtain Form SSA-2490-F4 (Part 1) and the appropriate RSDI applications and forward the claim to DIO with the Form CH/USA 3 and the Swiss coverage record.

2. Claimant already entitled to U.S. benefits

Destroy the Form CH/USA 3, unless it contains a request for information from SSA. In that case, forward the form to DIO.
