or fewer years remains covered only by the sending country. The 
Agreement includes additional rules that eliminate dual U.S. and 
Icelandic 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 Icelandic benefits based on combined
