GN 01726.015 How the Foreign Service Post Processes and Develops Claims Filed with a Dutch Agency

A. Process

When a claimant contacts a Dutch agency to file a claim for U.S. benefits, the agency routes form NL/VS 3 (Netherlands-U.S. Agreement on Social Security Transmittal/Request/Certification) to the FSP in Dublin. The Dutch coverage record, form NL/VS 205, will be included.

B. Procedure

Follow the procedures below which explain how the FSP should process referrals from a Dutch agency.

1. Claimant not entitled to U.S. benefits

Obtain form SSA-2490-F4 (Part I) and the appropriate RSDI applications and evidence and forward the claim to DIO with the form NL/VS 3A and the coverage record, NL/VS 205.

2. Claimant already entitled to U.S. benefits

Forward all material to DIO annotated “already entitled to U.S. benefits.”
