If the person is filing for Czech benefits and the “Claim for A Pension from the Czech Republic” (CZ/USA202) is not in file, mail the appropriate application form with instructions to mail the completed form directly to the Czech Republic agency, Ceska Sprava Socialniho Zabezpeceni (CSSZ) below:.
NOTE: Print the Claim for a Pension from CSSZ (CZ/USA 202) from the OCO Totalization Resource Kit.
Check the file for a U.S. totalization earnings record that can be sent to CSSZ. If one is not in file, request an ICERS record following the instructions in MSOM ICERS 001.001 and MSOM ICERS 001.004 for inclusion in the package to CSSZ.
