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

1. U.S. coverage desired

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. Danish coverage desired

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

3. Contents of letter

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.

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