GN 01747.125 Eligibility for Danish Benefits under the Agreement

A. Policy — General

Under the agreement with Denmark, SSA will take applications for both regular and Totalization benefits on behalf of Denmark and provide limited assistance in obtaining evidence needed to support the claim.

B. Policy — Using Evidence Submitted in Claim for U.S. Benefits

Evidence that is used to establish a factor of entitlement for U.S. Social Security benefits may also be used by Denmark to establish the same factor for Danish benefits. However, it may be necessary for the applicant to submit additional evidence to document a factor of entitlement for Danish benefits if requested by the Danish authorities.
