Obtain the NH's U.S. earnings record in all claims for U.K. benefits when the applicant
is filing for both U.S. and U.K benefits. You can complete the Modernized Claims System
(MCS) screens. The MCS screens will automatically generate a separate earnings record
for the U.K. claim.
When a claimant files for U.K. benefits only, which is a MCS exclusion, request an
Information/Certified Earnings Record (ICERS) per MS 02101.004.
Obtain proof of lag earnings (unposted paid earnings in the current or preceding year
through the quarter of attainment of age 65 if the NH is a man or the quarter of attainment
of age 60 if the NH is a woman). *For proof of lag earnings, see RS 01404.005 and RS 01404.018. For proof of lag self-employment earnings, see RS 01804.100
