GN 01718.211 Preparing Final Claim Packages for the Swedish Agency

A. Policy

Sweden often pays a means tested supplement to Swedish pensioners residing in Sweden. The U.S. benefit could reduce the amount of this supplement. Therefore, SSA will advise the SLAFU of a U.S. benefit paid to Swedish residents.

B. Procedure

1. Claims authorizers

Prepare a routing slip, SSA-559, after awarding benefits to a Swedish resident.

  1. Enter:

    • the month of entitlement (MOEN).

      NOTE: If a beneficiary's MOEN is prior to the effective date of the Agreement, enter “01/01/87” as the MOEN.

    • the current MBA.

    • “Send this information to the SLAFU.”

  2. Route the folder to a Liaison Clerk.

2. Liaison clerks

Complete Form SSA-2960-U3-SW Part II with “Date of Entitlement” and “Current Benefit Amount” information.

NOTE: This information cannot be released without a consent form unless a claim has been filed under the agreement.
