If the claimant contacts an ISM or INSS office to apply for both U.S. and Spanish
benefits, the agency obtains the required Spanish forms and form USA/ E2 (Statement
of Intent to File for U.S. Benefits). Form USA/E2 is forwarded to the FSP, Madrid
for claims development.
The Spanish agency prepares and forwards the following material to OIO:
Liaison form E/USA 3, certifying the filing date and requesting a U.S. coverage record
and/or entitlement data if it is needed.
Available medical evidence if the claim is for disability benefits.
