There are some entries which must be shown on the Irish coverage record before it
can be used to credit Irish coverage. The following section describes the entries
required for an acceptable Irish coverage certification.
Follow these steps to evaluate Irish coverage certifications, on form IRL/ USA 4.
Is the correct worker's name shown on the coverage record?
If yes, go to Step 2
If no, route the case to IOTS for evaluation.
Is a “FROM - TO” entry shown for each period in which there is an entry in the number of weeks column?
If yes, go to Step 3
Is there a number of weeks entry for each “FROM - TO” period and is the weeks entry less than or equal to the number of weeks in the corresponding
“FROM - TO” period?
If yes, go to Step 4
Is the form IRL/USA 4 properly certified including the signature and official stamp?
