Agreement On Social Security Between The Republic Of India And Sweden
Under these agreements, Australia equates social security periods/stays in these countries with periods of Australian residence in order to meet minimum qualification periods for Australian pensions. In other countries, periods of Australian working life are generally counted as social security periods to meet their minimum payment periods. Typically, each country pays a partial pension to a person who has lived in both countries. Sweden has a social security agreement with the following countries. Please note that agreements with EU Member States are mainly subject to EU Regulation 883/2004 on the coordination of social security systems. At the end of the maximum period of secondment, seconded personnel are no longer covered by the social security of the country of origin. At the end of the booking period, Sweden will no longer pay a fee. Some conventions are structured so that seconded staff remain in the social security system of the country of origin for a period specified in each agreement and then transferred to the social security system of the country of work. These conventions are generally referred to as unintended agreements. Other agreements are designed so that seconded personnel are covered by country of work legislation from the first day of the detachment, when, at the time of secondment, the detachment is expected to remain above the maximum duration of detachment specified in the agreement. These conventions are generally referred to as conventions of intent, i.e., at the time of posting, they are the intent that governs applicable legislation. All of these agreements are based on the concept of shared responsibility.
Responsibility-sharing agreements are reciprocal. Under each agreement, partner countries make concessions to their social security qualification rules so that those covered by the agreement have access to payments that they may not be eligible for. The responsibility for social security is thus distributed among the countries in which a person has lived during his or her working years and where the person is able to obtain potential rights. In general, it is possible to access a pension from one country in the second country, although the paying country retains some discretion with regard to the exchange and delivery mechanisms used. Third-country nationals (i.e. those who reside in a Member State but are not nationals of an EU or EEA or Switzerland) are subject to EU social security affiliation rules. The rules for third-country nationals apply in all EU countries except Denmark and the United Kingdom.
