In addition to the procedures for handling foreign agency liaison forms contained
in GN 01704.000ff, the following applies:
In OIO, treat any indication under the “U.S. Benefits” column in part 1.D. as a claims lead for U.S. benefits unless the Irish agency indicated
in Part 5 that the claim was transferred to the Dublin FSP.
return to the Irish agency, via form SSA-2960-U3-IR, any request that does not indicate
that it is needed to process a claim under the agreement, unless written consent to
disclosure is attached, or there is an SSA-2490 in file, signed by the claimant.
