Consistent with section 233 of the Act, SSA enters 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 SSA in administering
its programs in the foreign country and SSA provides reciprocal services for the foreign
country. This includes, but may not be limited to, providing services such as post-entitlement
reviews, program and operational studies, and integrity reviews and evaluations.
