RS 02001.209 Requests for Special Exceptions - U.S. Norwegian Agreement

A. How to request special exceptions

A worker or employer who wishes to apply for a special exception writes to the designated agency in the country where the worker wishes to remain covered. The letter should:

  • give all the information necessary to issue a certificate of coverage under the U.S.-Norwegian agreement (see RS 02001.206); and

  • explain why a special exception should be granted.

    Individuals wishing to request an exception granting U.S. coverage should write to the following address:

    Social Security Administration
    Office of Earnings and International Operations
    P.O. Box 17741
    Baltimore, MD 21235-7741
    USA

    Individuals wishing to request an exception granting Norwegian coverage should write to the address below:

    NAV utland
    Postboks 8138 Dep.
    0033 Olso
    NORWAY

Upon receipt of a request for a special exception, the agency that receives the request will consider it in collaboration with the other country's agency. If both agencies approve the request for a special exception, the agency that receives the request will issue a certificate of coverage. The certificate of coverage will serve as proof of exemption from coverage and taxes in the other country.
