GN 01748.005 How DIO Modules Review Claims under the U.S./Danish Totalization Agreement

A. Procedure

Follow these steps for reviewing claims under the U.S/Danish Totalization agreement:

  1. 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.

  2. 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
    Landemaerket 11
    DK 1119 Copenhagen, Denmark

    NOTE: The SSA-2490 may be printed from the SSA Totalization Forms section of the Totalization Resource Kit.

  3. 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.

  4. Confirm that all available medical evidence has been included if the claim is for disability benefits.
