In general, the agreement is similar to other social security agreements concluded by Switzerland and complies with international standards that generally apply to such agreements. The scope of the Convention covers the legislation of both States on old-age insurance, inheritance and invalidity. It concerns in particular (i) equal treatment between nationals of the two States Parties, (ii) access to social security benefits of The States Parties and (iii) payment abroad of ordinary public pensions. The term also includes a foreign subsidiary of a U.S. employer where the U.S. employer has entered into an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) pursuant to Section 3121(l) of the Domestic Revenue Code (IRC) for the payment of Social Security taxes for U.S. citizens and residents employed by the related business.
