A complete list of routine uses for this information can be found in our Recording Information System entitled, 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 in any social security office. If a U.S. benefit is payable as a result of the U.S. and Polish Social Security loans counting, 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 Polish loans helped pay for the benefit. 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. Social security agreements are currently in force: certain categories of Polish workers are subject to the early retirement age, subject to collective labour agreements. No provision for higher retirement benefits due to retirement delay. An agreement that will enter into force on March 1, 2009 between the United States and Poland 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. It also helps people who would otherwise have to pay social security contributions to the two countries with the same incomes. The agreement includes social security contributions (including Medicare`s U.S. share) as well as Social Security, Disability and Survivor Pension Benefits. It does not cover benefits under the U.S.
Medicare program or the security supplement. More detailed information about the Polish system can be found at Polish addresses on the information sheet of this publication or on the Polish Social Security website for www.zus.pl and on the Polish Social Security website for KRUS www.krus.gov.pl/en/about-krus/. The United States has agreements with several nations, the so-called totalization conventions, in order to avoid double taxation of income in relation to social contributions. These agreements must be taken into account in determining whether a foreigner is subject to the U.S. Social Security Tax/Medicare or whether a U.S. citizen or resident alien is subject to the social security taxes of a foreign country. On the other hand, if your employer sends you from one country to work for that employer or subsidiary in the other country for five or fewer years, you will continue to be covered by your country of origin and you will be released from your coverage in the other country. For example, when a U.S. company sends an employee to that employer or subsidiary in Poland for at least five years, the employer and worker pay only U.S. social security taxes and do not have to pay social security contributions in Poland.
