When a non-entitled person contacts the Greek agency to file a claim for U.S. benefits,
IKA routes Form GR/USA 3 (Greece/U.S. Agreement on Social Security Transmittal/Request/Certification)
to the FSP. The Greek coverage record should be attached.
If IKA is aware that the person is already entitled to U.S. benefits or clearly ineligible,
they will restrict the claim to Greek benefits only.
A local Greek insurance office needing a U.S. earnings record (E/R), or any other
evidence from DIO in connection with a claim for Greek benefits, requests it through
IKA. IKA then requests the information from DIO via the GR /USA 3.
