GN 01734.015 How OIO Totalization Modules and CDB Process and Develop Claims Filed With a Luxembourg Agency
When a U.S. claim is filed with a Luxembourg agency, the agency forwards Form LUX/USA 3 certifying the date of filing. In addition, the appropriate block in Item I.D. should be checked to indicate that a U.S. claim has been filed.
When a Luxembourg agency certifies factors of entitlement as "verified" in Part II of the form LUX/USA 3, the certification may be accepted as proof of the eligibility factor. Further development is not required unless there is a material discrepancy.
C. Procedure - Totalization modules

Determine if the claimant is eligible for U.S. benefits.
If the claimant is not eligible or is already entitled to U.S. benefits, send an informal denial notice.
