The FSP in Dublin takes claims from individuals who wish to file for benefits under
the Irish agreement and also assists in processing certain types of claims filed with
the Irish social security agency.
When taking applications under the agreement, the FSP should follow the same general
procedures and obtain the same applications and evidence as SSA field offices (See
GN 01702.001- GN 01702.525 for DO and FSP Development and see GN 01735.205 - GN 01735.220 for specific evidence and application requirements for the agreement with Ireland).
