GN 01738.211 Preparing Final Claim Packages for the Greek Agency

A. Policy

Greece often pays a family supplement to Greek pensioners residing in Greece. The U.S. benefit could reduce the amount of this supplement. Therefore, SSA will advise IKA of a U.S. benefit paid to Greek residents.

B. Procedure

1. Claims Authorizers

Prepare a routing slip, SSA-559, after awarding benefits to a Greek resident.

  1. Enter:

    • the first month of entitlement (MOEN) that a full benefit is payable.

      IMPORTANT: If a beneficiary's MOEN is prior to the effective date of the Agreement, enter “09/01/94” as the MOEN.

    • the MBA for the first month of a full payment.

  2. Route the folder to a Liaison Clerk.

2. Liaison Clerks

Complete Form SSA-2960-U3-GR Part II with “Benefit Data” information.

Note: This information cannot be released without a consent form unless a claim has been filed under the agreement.
