GN 01748.005 How DIO Modules Review Claims under the U.S./Danish Totalization Agreement
Follow these steps for reviewing claims under the U.S/Danish Totalization agreement:
Review the file for the required SSA-2490 BK application and any evidence listed GN 01747.205 - GN 01747.220. See GN 01704.500 for additional instructions for developing and evaluating evidence.
NOTE: If additional information is needed, request the FO, FSP to obtain it.
If the person is filing for Danish benefits and the SSA-2490 is not in file, mail the appropriate application form with instructions to mail the completed form directly to the Danish agency below: National Social Security Agency (NSSA)
6 Division, International Office
DK 1119 Copenhagen, Denmark
NOTE: The SSA-2490 may be printed from the SSA Totalization Forms section of the Totalization Resource Kit.
Check the file for a U.S. certified earnings record for totalization that can be sent to the Danish agency. If one is not file, request an ICERS record following the instructions in MSOM ICERS 001.001 – MSOM ICERS 001.004 for inclusion in the package to Denmark.
Confirm that all available medical evidence has been included if the claim is for disability benefits.
When all required material is in file, refer to the guidelines in GN 01748.205, GN 01748.210 for preparing a claims package for the Danish Agency.
