The Social Security agreement between the United States and Greece:

  • permits workers (and their family members) to qualify for partial U.S. or Greek benefits, even though they do not meet the normal insured status requirements.

B. Preview

The following sections give a brief overview of the Greek system, explain the provisions of the agreement, and provide instructions on how to take and process claims for both United States and Greek benefits filed under the agreement.
