The Australian coverage certification is used to assign foreign (F) quarters of coverage
to the U.S. coverage record.
There is no minimum amount of Australian coverage that must be earned before the U.S.
can use it.
Australia will certify periods of residence in Australia during which the claimant
worked. These will be referred to as “working life residence” periods.
All periods of coverage certified by Australia are creditable.
Refer any questionable Australian coverage records to CPS-I for evaluation.
