RS 02001.075 Special Exceptions to the Coverage Rules Under the U.S. -Italian Agreement

A. INTRODUCTION

The rules for eliminating dual Social Security coverage described in RS 02001.060-RS 02001.065 cover the great majority of situations where a worker would otherwise be subject to coverage by both the United States and Italy. However, these rules may have unintended results in certain cases. For this reason, a special exception provision is included in the agreement.

B. POLICY

An employer or self-employed person may request a special exception to the normal coverage rules of the agreement. Both countries must agree to the special exception before it may be granted. If either country does not agree with a proposed exception, the worker will be covered in accordance with the applicable coverage rule of the agreement.
