GN 01753.125 Eligibility for Slovak Benefits Under the Agreement with the Slovak Republic
Under the Totalization agreement with the Slovak Republic, SSA takes applications for both regular and Totalization benefits on behalf of the Slovak Republic. SSA also provides limited assistance in obtaining evidence needed to support the claim.
A. Minimum coverage requirement for Slovak benefits
The agreement modifies the insured status requirements of the Slovak social insurance system. Under the agreement, if a worker has at least 12 months of Slovak coverage, but not enough to receive an old-age benefit, the Slovak Republic will credit 90 days of coverage for each quarter of U.S. coverage SSA certifies.
