If you are self-employed and normally have to pay social security taxes to the U.S. and Dutch systems, you can decide to exempt one of the taxes: to submit a right to U.S. or Dutch benefits as part of the agreement, follow the instructions of the « Benefits Rights » section. Before you leave, you need to check with the relevant institutions to find out what formalities you need to complete in order to receive your social security benefits or to receive social benefits. Section 233 of the Amended Social Security Act [42 U.S.C. 433] authorizes us to collect this information. We use the information you provide to determine whether your current work should be covered only by the U.S. social security system, in accordance with a totalization agreement. The information you provide on this form is optional. However, if we do not provide all or part of the requested information, we may not make a timely and accurate decision on your application for a coverage certificate. Without the certificate, current work can continue to be covered and taxed under U.S. and foreign social security plans.
We will only use the information you provide on this form for reasons other than the ones described above. However, we can use it for the management and integrity of social security programs. We may also disclose information to another person or agency, in accordance with the permitted routine uses, including: If you work as an employee in the United States, you are generally covered by the United States and you and your employer only pay social security contributions in the United States. If you work as a worker in the Netherlands, you are usually insured by the Netherlands and you and your employer only pay social security contributions in the Netherlands. Here you will find the text of the agreement and the text of the administrative agreement: Normally, people who are not U.S. citizens can receive U.S. Social Security benefits while they are outside the United States, only if they meet certain requirements. However, according to the agreement, you can receive benefits as long as you reside in the Netherlands, regardless of your nationality. If you are not a Dutch citizen of the United States and you live in another country, you cannot receive benefits. Your Payment While You Are Outside The United States (Publication No. 05-10137) explains the restrictions placed on U.S.
services. The following table outlines the different types of social security benefits payable under the U.S. and Netherlands system and briefly outlines the eligibility requirements normally applicable to each type of benefit. If you do not meet the normal conditions for these benefits, the agreement can help you qualify (see « How Benefits Can Be Paid »). If you have credits in both the United States and the Netherlands, you may be eligible for benefits from one or both countries. If you meet all the essential requirements under a country`s system, you will benefit regularly from that country. If you don`t meet the basic requirements, the agreement can help you qualify for a performance, as explained below. If you have not yet applied for benefits, you may need to provide some information and documents when you apply. These include the United States of the worker.
