RS 02001.942 Processing Requests for Special Exceptions under the Chilean Agreement

A. PROCESS

A worker or employer who wishes to apply for a special exception writes to the agency in the country where coverage is desired.

1. U.S. Coverage

If U.S. coverage is desired, the letter should be sent to:

Social Security Administration
Office of International Programs
P.O. Box 17741
Baltimore, Maryland 21235-7741

2. Chilean Coverage

If Chilean coverage is desired, the letter should be sent to:

Ministerio del Trabajo y Previsión Social
Huérfanos N° 1273
5° Piso
Santiago
CHILE

3. Contents of Letter Requesting an Exception

The letter requesting the exception should provide:

  • an explanation of why an exception should be granted, and

  • all of the information needed to issue a certificate of coverage (see RS 02001.948B.1.).

The agency receiving the request will coordinate with the other agency if it believes an exception should be granted. When an exception is granted, the agency of the country that will cover the worker issues a certificate of coverage to serve as proof of exemption from coverage and taxes in the other country.
