Field offices (FOs) must process an initial insured status denial (see GN 01702.310 – GN 01702.525), when the worker has at least six (6) QC's but is not insured based on U.S. coverage
alone. When the FO processes the initial denial, the action automatically sends a
notice informing the applicant that they do not meet insured status based on U.S.
coverage alone, and that SSA is requesting the Luxembourg coverage record.
The FO routes the claim to:
Social Security Administration
P.O. Box 17769
Baltimore, MD 21235-7769
For information about processing totalization insured status notices in claims for
U.S. benefits, see GN 01702.315.
