GN 01733.125 Eligibility for Luxembourg Benefits under the Agreement

A. Determining eligibility

The agreement provides that Luxembourg count a worker’s U.S. coverage when deciding eligibility for Luxembourg benefits if the worker:

  • is not insured based on Luxembourg coverage alone, and

  • has at least 12 months of Luxembourg coverage.

B. Crediting U.S. coverage

Luxembourg credits three (3) months of Luxembourg coverage for each U.S. quarter of coverage (QC). However, Luxembourg does not credit any month already credited as a month of coverage under the Luxembourg system.
