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.Uruguayan 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 Uruguayan 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 Uruguayan benefits based on combined (totalized) work credits from both countries.

States (U.S.) and Uruguayan social security programs effective on 
November 1, 2018. The Agreement with Uruguay, which was signed on 
January 10, 2017, is similar to U.S. social security agreements already 
in force with 27 other countries--Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, 
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.-Uruguayan 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.-
Uruguayan 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 Uruguayan 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 Uruguayan benefits based on combined 
(totalized) work credits from both countries.
