This document discusses the strengths of the agreement and how it can help you work and apply for benefits. In general, the existence of an existing agreement can help to improve trade and economic activities between France and China. Supplementary pension contributions are calculated on the basis of the wage components that feed into the social security contribution base. From 1 January 2019, the Agirc-Arrco system will use a contribution base of 2 salaries. For each category of salary, a separate contribution rate, which is shared by the employer (60%) staff (40%). The basic pension cannot exceed 50% of the social security ceiling (1,714 euros per month in 2020). France and the People`s Republic of China signed a social security agreement on 31 October 2016.1 This is the first such agreement between the two countries. The table below shows whether Social Security or France covers your work. If U.S. Social Security covers your work, you and your employer (if you are an employee) must pay U.S. Social Security taxes.
If the French system covers your work, you and your employer (if you are an employee) must meet France`s contribution requirements. The following section explains how you get a country guarantee certificate that proves that you are exempt in the other country. Note In addition to pension, disability and survival benefits, French social security contributions cover several other benefit programmes, including France`s national health insurance program. As a result, a worker who is exempt from paying the French social security tax through the contract cannot benefit from free health benefits or other benefits under the French health insurance scheme. If you meet all other social security tax exemption requirements in France while working in France, you or your employer must take out private health insurance before the exemption can apply. Both European legislation and social security agreements allow a worker to move from the country of origin to the French regime and, in some cases, to rights. If you are entitled to social benefits from both the United States and France and you do not need the agreement to be eligible for either benefit, U.S. law may reduce the amount of your U.S. benefit. This is the result of a provision in U.S.
law that can influence how the U.S. calculates your benefit if you also receive a pension based on work that is not covered by U.S. Social Security. For more information, please visit our website at www.socialsecurity.gov, and get a copy of windfall Elimination Commission (Publication No.
