Sometimes when a worker from one country works in another country he is covered by the social security systems of both for the same work. When such dual coverage occurs, the worker or his employer may be required to pay social security contributions to the two countries at the same time. Bilateral Social Security agreements are designed to avoid such problems.
The U.S. has such agreements with over 20 countries. The Social Security Administration maintains a page on bilateral Social Security Agreements. Among other resources, this page contains a description and the complete text of each agreement.
