Obtain the NH’s U.S. earnings records in all claims for Icelandic benefits as follows:
when the applicant is filing for both U.S. and Icelandic benefits, complete the Modernized
Claims System (MCS) screens. The MCS screens will automatically generate a separate
earnings record for the Icelandic claim;
when the applicant files for Icelandic benefits only, which is an MCS exclusion, request
an Informational/Certified Earnings Record (ICERS) per MS ICER 001.004; and
obtain proof of lag earnings (unposted paid earnings in the current and preceding
year) if U.S. covered work in the lag period is alleged and the applicant is filing
for any Icelandic benefit.
For proof of lag wages, see RS 01404.005 through RS 01404.018.
For proof of lag self-employment income, see RS 01804.100.
