RS 02002.145 Certificates of Coverage Under the Agreement with Denmark

A. Policy explaining the purpose of a certificate of coverage

Certificates of coverage are the forms that SSA and the Danish authorities issue to workers who would otherwise have to pay Social Security taxes to both countries on the same earnings. A certificate issued by one country serves as proof that the worker named on the certificate is:

  • subject to the laws of the country issuing the certificate, and

  • exempt from Social Security coverage and contributions on the same earnings in the other country.
