A common misconception about the U.S. agreements is that they allow dual-coverage workers or their employers to choose the system they will contribute to. This is not the case. In addition, the agreements do not change the basic coverage provisions of the social security laws of the participating countries – such as. B those that define covered income or covered work. They exempt workers from coverage under the scheme of one country or another only if their work would otherwise fall under both schemes. Although these considerations pose a challenge for the employer, it is important to recognise that there are currently a number of multilateral agreements (EU Regulation 883/2004, Social Security Convention of the Ibero-American Organisation, etc.) or bilateral aggregation agreements (social security agreements between two countries) to address concerns related to contributions and entitlements to benefits – thus facilitating the employer`s task.

Similarly, the partner country pays a partial or proportional benefit if the combined coverage gives rise to a claim. Thus, it is possible for a person to receive a comprehensive benefit under an agreement from one or both countries if they meet all applicable eligibility requirements.
== Prorated benefit provisions are uniform across all aggregation agreements, as provided by law in 42 U.S.C§ 433 and 20 C.F.R. § 404.1918. Determining a prorated U.S. benefit amount under a tablation agreement is a three-step process. The general principle of all totalization agreements is that if everything else is the same, an employee must pay taxes and only fall under the social security system of the country where he actually works. This simple rule is called the territoriality rule, which means that the territory in which a person works determines their tax liability. All other coverage provisions of aggregation agreements are exceptions to this basic rule. Since 1 January 2011, Regulation (EU) No 1231/2010 extends modernised coordination to third-country nationals (third-country nationals) legally residing in the EU and crossing borders.
