There are some entries which must be shown on an Austrian coverage certification before
it can be used to credit Austrian coverage.
Take the following actions to evaluate Austrian coverage certifications.
Utilize the worker's name, date of birth, U.S. SSN or other identifying information
to ensure that the correct worker is identified on the coverage record or on the A/USA2
attached to the coverage record.
Ensure that the coverage record was certified directly to OIO or FSP by one of the
Austrian agencies listed in GN 01730.025, not through the claimant or third party.
If a form A/USA 4 was used, ensure that it was properly certified in part 3 (including
name and address of the agency, seal, date and signature). If not properly certified,
return the form to the appropriate agency via a form SSA-2960-U3-AU.
