General agreement between France and Norway on social security, signed on 30 September 1954 and entered into force on 1 July 1956. To access health care in the country where you have been posted, make sure you receive a European Health Insurance Card (CEVK). You can get a CEVK from your health care provider or social security services in your home country. If a U.S. benefit is payable because of the counting of U.S. and Dutch social security loans, an initial benefit will be determined based on your U.S. income, as if your career had been terminated under the U.S. system. This initial benefit is then reduced to reflect the fact that the Dutch loans contributed to the allocation. The amount of the reduction depends on the number of U.S.
loans: the more U.S. loans, the less reduction; And the fewer U.S. loans, the greater the reduction. Note As shown in the table, an American worker employed in the Netherlands can only be covered by U.S. Social Security if he or she works for a U.S. employer. A U.S. employer includes a company organized under U.S. or state law, a partnership if at least two-thirds of the partners are based in the United States, a U.S.-based person or a fiduciary company if all agents are established in the United States. It is also a foreign subsidiary of a U.S. employer when the U.S.
employer entered into an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), pursuant to Section 3121 (l) of the Internal Revenue Code, to pay Social Security taxes for U.S. citizens and residents employed by the subsidiary. The basic rule is that if you work in more than one EU country but are engaged in a significant part of your professional activity in your country of residence, you are covered in your country of residence by the social security system of your country of residence. A coverage certificate issued by one country serves as proof of the exemption of social security contributions for the same income in the other country.
