As part of the secondment or abolition of the dual contribution, workers who have moved to a SSA country are exempt from social security in the host country for a certain period of time (specific to each SSA), provided that they continue to pay social security contributions in their home country. This benefit can be used by obtaining a “guarantee certificate” (CoC) from the national authorities responsible for social security and presented to the social security authorities of the host country. Despite years of negotiations, the United States has not signed the Totalization Agreement, also known as the Social Security Agreement (SSA) with India, to protect the rights of IT and other service workers who share their professional careers between India and the United States. Although there are a number of practical challenges, the PF authorities have consistently clarified the way in support of the successful implementation of the SSA. The increasing coverage of countries under bilateral agreements, combined with good implementation, brings considerable benefits to the mobile population with its employers and is therefore a step in the right direction. “The United States believes that due to the incompatibility of the two social security systems, the totalization agreement may not be plausible in the current context,” says the joint CII-USIBC report, which recommends an analysis of the feasibility and prospects of an agreement. As per day, India has SSAs with at least 18 countries and the United States has an agreement with more than 24 nations. “The issue of totalization has also arisen. There was a feeling that Indian pros who spend less than eight years and contribute to social security… really need to get that money back,” Shringla said Tuesday. The SSAs offer three benefits overall, including preventing dual social security contributions for workers, simply transferring benefits and aggregating contribution periods in two countries to avoid loss of benefits,” Rao said. “I told President (US) Trump that the contribution of our Social Security experts should be discussed further as part of a totalization agreement. It will be of mutual interest to both of us,” Narendra Modi told reporters in New Delhi with Trump.
