Consistent with section 233 of the Act, we enter into mutual assistance arrangements
with the social security agencies of certain countries with which we have totalization
agreements. Under these arrangements, the foreign agency assists us in administering
its programs in the foreign country and we provide reciprocal services for the foreign
country. This arrangement includes, but may not be limited to, providing services
such as post-entitlement reviews, program and operational studies, and integrity reviews
and evaluations. See GN 01703.000 more information on totalization arrangements.
