GN 01731.001 Overview of Agreement With Finland
The Social Security agreement between the United States and Finland
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 Finnish benefits, even though they do not meet the normal insured status requirements.
The following sections give a brief overview of the Finnish system, explain the provisions of the agreement, and provide instructions on how to take and process claims for both U.S. and Finnish benefits filed under the agreement.
