RS 02002.300 Processing Requests for Special Exceptions under the Agreement with the Slovak Republic

A. Process to request a special exception

An employer or self-employed worker who wishes to apply for a special exception must write to the agency in the country where the worker desires coverage.

1. United States coverage

If the worker desires U.S. coverage, send the letter to:

Social Security Administration
Offfice of International Programs
P.O. Box 17741
Baltimore, Maryland 21235-7741
United States of America

Fax 410-966-1861

2. Slovak Republic coverage

If the worker desires Slovak coverage, send the letter to:

Sociálna Poisovòa
ul. 29. Augusta c. 8 a 10

Slovenská republika
SLOVAK REPUBLIC

3. Contents of letter requesting an exception

The letter requesting the exception should provide:

  • an explanation of why either country should grant an exception, and

  • all of the information needed to issue a certificate of coverage (see RS 02002.310B.1).

The agency receiving the request will coordinate with the other agency to request a special exception. When the other agency grants the exception, 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.
