Any family member who accompanies a detached worker from one country to the other
is subject only to the laws of the country from which the detached worker was sent,
unless the family member becomes employed or self-employed in the host country.
Coverage for family members working in the host country is determined in accordance
with the provisions of the agreement without regard to the worker’s coverage. This
means, for example, that family members who accompany detached workers transferred
from the United States to Denmark are not covered or eligible for benefits under the
Danish Social Security laws unless they work in Denmark.
