Credits acquired in the country with a tabonization agreement can be transferred to another party (i.e.: From Great Britain to the United States or vice versa), if a duplicate does not have a sufficient number of credits in one of the countries to qualify for benefits. While they are transferred to another country`s social security system, these credits do not reduce the number of loans accumulated in another country – so you may be entitled to receive social security benefits from both schemes once you reach retirement age. 12 In the meantime, the United States had also concluded an agreement with West Germany, which was also pending until the adoption of the 1977 amendments. In order to eliminate the double taxation of Social Security and Medicare taxes, the United States has entered into international agreements (known as the “taben-up agreement”) with 25 countries. They are known as “totalization” agreements and resemble operating and structural contracts and are legally classified as agreements between Congress and the executive branch in accordance with the law. The agreements have three main objectives: the elimination of double taxation of income, the protection of benefits for workers who have shared their careers between the United States and another country, and the full payment of benefits to residents of both countries. . . .
