People living in Australia can claim Danish and Australian pension rights at any Centrelink customer service centre. Centrelink will provide all necessary application forms. Tax payers must write in red at the top of forms 1040-X “French CSG/CRDS rights” and submit them in accordance with the instructions of these forms with the attached forms 1116. U.S. employers cannot claim refunds that have withheld a foreign tax credit for CSG/CRDS or who have paid it on behalf of their employees. The table below outlines the different types of social security benefits to be paid under the U.S. and Denmark social security plans 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 Part IV.A below). The supplementary pension on the labour market (ATP) is paid on the basis of the worker`s contributions and all the years of work. A person can qualify for an ATP performance with only one month of ATP coverage. As a result, work credits under the U.S.
system are not included in determining eligibility for ATP benefits. If you move from Denmark to a country with which New Zealand does not have a social security agreement, your New Zealand benefits or pensions will be suspended. This agreement may be amended in the future by complementary agreements which, as soon as they come into force, will be considered an integral part of this agreement. These agreements can be concluded retroactively if they specify. An agreement that will enter into force on October 1, 2008 between the United States and Denmark will improve the protection of social security for people working or working in both countries. It helps many people who, in the absence of the agreement, would not be entitled to monthly pension, disability or survival benefits under the social security system of one or both countries.
