If a U.S. benefit is payable based on the U.S. and Polish Social Security Credit statement, an initial benefit will be determined based on your U.S. income, as if your entire career had been completed under the U.S. plan. This initial benefit is then reduced to take account of the fact that Polish loans helped to pay the benefit. The amount of the reduction depends on the number of US credits: the more US credits, the smaller the reduction; and the fewer U.S. loans there are, the greater the reduction. If you have contributed to both the Canada Pension Plan and the Polish pension program, or if you have lived in Canada and Poland, this agreement may help you qualify for: Section 233 of the amended Social Security Act, [42 U.S.C. 433] authorizes us to collect this information. We use the information you have provided to determine whether your current work should only be covered by the U.S. Social Security system, pursuant to a tabling agreement.
The information you provide in this form is optional. However, failure to provide some or all of the requested information may prevent us from making an accurate and timely decision on your application for a cover certificate. Without the certificate, current work can continue to be subject to coverage and taxation, both in U.S. and foreign social security systems. We rarely use the information you provide in this form for purposes other than for the reasons mentioned 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 permitted routine applications, including, but not limited to: no temporary disability benefit if the farmer is covered by another social security. A complete list of routine uses of this information can be found in our System of Records Notice, Earnings Records and Self-Employment Income System, 60-0059. This communication, additional information on this form and information about our programs and systems are available online from www.socialsecurity.gov or from any social security institution. Under this agreement, German pensions for work in the ghetto are transferred to beneficiaries residing in the territory of the Republic of Poland. .
