Social Security Agreement Between India And Finland

You must apply for a certificate from the Finnish Pension Center to prove that you are covered by Finnish social security legislation while working in the United States. All these agreements are based on the concept of shared responsibility. Shared responsibility agreements are reciprocal. Under each agreement, partner countries make concessions on their social security rules so that people covered by the agreement have access to payments for which they might not otherwise be entitled. In this way, the responsibility for social security is shared between the countries where a person has lived during his or her working years and the person can release potential rights. As a general rule, a pension from one country may be received in the second country, although the paying country retains some discretion in the currency used and in the delivery mechanisms used.
