Other important information

- The accredited periods of insurance in either of the two countries before the Agreement came into force will be taken into account for determining the entitlement to benefits recognised under said Agreement.

- If the periods of insurance before the Agreement came into force overlap, each of the countries will take into account only the contribution periods in that country needed to determine entitlement to and the amount of the benefit.

- The application of the Agreement allows for entitlement to benefits for contingencies that occurred before it came into force to be examined, although under no circumstances will payment of these benefits be made for periods before that date.

- Pensions that were granted or denied by one or both countries before the Agreement came into force will be reviewed upon the request of the interested parties, if the application for a review is made within a maximum of one year after the Agreement comes in to force. However, benefits paid as a single payment or those that were granted by a court case, or in the case of Colombia, agreed with the interested party, will not be reviewed.
