The Agreement includes additional rules that eliminate dual U.S. and Brazilian coverage in other work situations. The Agreement also helps eliminate situations where workers suffer a loss of benefit rights because they have divided their careers between the two countries.

Agreement on Social Security Between the United States and the 
Federative Republic of Brazil; Entry Into Force

AGENCY: Social Security Administration (SSA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are giving notice of an agreement coordinating the United 
States (U.S.) and Brazilian social security programs effective on 
October 1, 2018. The Agreement with Brazil, which was signed on June 
30, 2015, is similar to U.S. social security agreements already in 
force with 26 other countries--Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, 
Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, 
Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea (South), Luxembourg, the 
Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, the Slovak Republic, Spain, 
Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Section 233 of the Social 
Security Act authorizes agreements of this type.
    Like the other agreements, the U.S.-Brazilian Agreement eliminates 
dual social security coverage. This situation exists when a worker from 
one country works in the other country and has coverage under the 
social security systems of both countries for the same work. Without 
such agreements in force, when dual coverage occurs, the worker, the 
worker's employer, or both may be required to pay social security 
contributions to the two countries simultaneously. Under the U.S.-
Brazilian Agreement, a worker who is sent by an employer in one country 
to work in the other country for 5 or fewer years remains covered only 
by the sending country. The Agreement includes additional rules that 
eliminate dual U.S. and Brazilian coverage in other work situations.
    The Agreement also helps eliminate situations where workers suffer 
a loss of benefit rights because they have divided their careers 
between the two countries. Under the Agreement, workers may qualify for 
partial U.S. benefits or partial Brazilian benefits based on combined 
(totalized) work credits from both countries.
    Persons who wish to obtain copies of the Agreement or want more 
information about its provisions may write to the Social Security 
Administration, Office of International Programs, Post Office Box 
17741, Baltimore, MD 21235-7741 or visit the Social Security website at 
www.socialsecurity.gov/international. The full text of the Agreement 
and its accompanying Administrative Arrangement is available at https://www.ssa.gov/international/Agreement_Texts/brazil.html.
