GN 01725.001 Overview of Agreement With the Netherlands

A. Introduction

The Social Security agreement between the United States and the Netherlands:

  • eliminates dual Social Security coverage and taxation of the same work, and

  • permits workers (and their family members) to qualify for partial U.S. or Dutch benefits, even though they do not meet the normal insured status requirements.

B. Preview

The following sections give a brief overview of the Dutch system, explain the provisions of the agreement, and provide instructions on how to take and process claims for both U.S. and Dutch benefits filed under the agreement.
