  2. If the person is filing for Czech benefits and the “Claim for A Pension from the Czech Republic” (CZ/USA202) is not in file, mail the appropriate application form with instructions to mail the completed form directly to the Czech Republic agency, Ceska Sprava Socialniho Zabezpeceni (CSSZ) below:.
