Obtain a record of the NH's U.S. coverage in all claims for Luxembourg benefits.
When the applicant is filing for both U.S. and Luxembourg benefits, complete the modernized
claims system (MCS) screens, which automatically generates a separate earnings record
for the Luxembourg claim.
When a claimant files for Luxembourg benefits only, which is a complex MCS exclusion,
request an Informational/Certified Earnings Record (ICERS) per MSOM ICERS 001.004.
Obtain proof of lag earnings (unposted paid earnings in the current and preceding
year) through the quarter of filing or death in all claims for Luxembourg benefits.
(You will always need lag earnings since Luxembourg counts a worker’s U.S. quarters
of coverage in computing the amount of the Luxembourg benefit.)
