A. Policy - General

The agreement provides that France will count a worker's U.S. coverage when determining eligibility for French benefits if the worker:

  • is not insured based on French coverage alone, and

  • has at least one year of French coverage.

B. Policy - Crediting U.S. Coverage

France will credit one calendar quarter of French coverage for each U.S. QC. However, France will not credit any U.S. QC that is already credited as a quarter of French coverage, or more than 4 QC's for any calendar year.
