France Us Social Security Agreement

As of March 1, 2021, the United States and France have established a bilateral Social Security agreement. This agreement will provide more clarity and consistency for individuals who are working or have worked in both countries and are eligible for benefits.

Under this agreement, individuals who have worked in both countries will only need to pay into one Social Security system, rather than paying into both systems and potentially receiving reduced benefits. For example, if a US citizen worked in France and paid into the French Social Security system, they would still be eligible for benefits from the US Social Security system based on their work in the US.

Additionally, this agreement will make it easier for individuals to qualify for certain benefits that may have otherwise been unavailable to them. For example, if a French citizen worked in the US for a short period of time, they may not have been eligible for certain benefits from the US Social Security system. However, under this agreement, they may now be able to qualify for those benefits based on their combined work history in both countries.

It`s worth noting that this agreement only applies to Social Security taxes and benefits. It does not cover other areas such as health care or pension plans. It also does not affect the taxes that individuals must pay to each country`s respective government.

Overall, this Social Security agreement between the US and France is a positive development for individuals who have worked in both countries. It provides greater certainty and simplification in terms of Social Security benefits and payments, and eliminates the potential for reduced benefits due to dual taxation. As always, it`s important to consult with a qualified tax professional or financial advisor to fully understand how this agreement may impact your individual situation.
