The Governments signatory hereto, being Members of the Council of Europe,

Have agreed as follows:

Article 3

  • 1 Any agreement relating to the laws and regulations referred to in Article 1 which has been or may be concluded by any two or more of the Contracting Parties shall, subject to the provisions of Article 9, apply to a national of any other of the Contracting Parties as if he were a national of one of the former Parties insofar as it provides, in relation to those laws and regulations:

EUROPESE INTERIM-OVEREENKOMST BETREFFENDE DE REGELINGEN INZAKE SOCIALE ZEKERHEID VOOR OUDERDOM, INVALIDITEIT EN OVERLIJDEN

De Regeringen welke deze Overeenkomst hebben ondertekend, Leden van de Raad van Europa,

Overwegende dat het doel van de Raad van Europa is grotere eenheid onder zijn Leden te bewerkstelligen, teneinde onder meer hun sociale vooruitgang te bevorderen,

Bevestigende het beginsel van gelijkheid van behandeling van de onderdanen van alle Partijen bij deze Overeenkomst met betrekking tot de wetten en regelingen van ieder van Haar inzake de uitkeringen wegens ouderdom of invaliditeit of aan nabestaanden, welk beginsel is vastgelegd in de Verdragen van de Internationale Arbeidsorganisatie,

Eveneens bevestigende het beginsel, krachtens hetwelk de onderdanen van elke Overeenkomstsluitende Partij de voordelen moeten genieten van de overeenkomsten inzake de uitkeringen wegens ouderdom of invaliditeit of aan nabestaanden, gesloten tussen twee of meer van Haar,

Verlangende aan deze beginselen uitvoering te geven door het sluiten van een Interim-Overeenkomst, in afwachting van het sluiten van een algemeen verdrag, gegrond op een netwerk van bilaterale overeenkomsten,

Zijn het volgende overeengekomen:

Artikel 1

  • 1 Deze Overeenkomst is van toepassing op alle wetten en regelingen inzake de sociale zekerheid, welke op het tijdstip van haar ondertekening van kracht zijn dan wel op een later tijdstip van kracht worden op enig deel van het grondgebied van de Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen en welke betrekking hebben op:

    • (a) uitkeringen bij ouderdom;

    • (b) uitkeringen bij invaliditeit, met uitzondering van die welke worden verleend krachtens de wetgeving inzake bedrijfsongevallen en beroepsziekten;

    • (c) uitkeringen aan nagelaten betrekkingen, met uitzondering van de uitkeringen bij overlijden en de uitkeringen verleend krachtens de wetgeving inzake bedrijfsongevallen en beroepsziekten.

  • 2 Deze Overeenkomst is van toepassing op stelsels van uitkeringen met en zonder premiebetaling. Zij is niet van toepassing op bijstand van overheidswege, op bijzondere stelsels voor overheidsdienaren en op uitkeringen aan slachtoffers van oorlog of bezetting.

  • 3 Voor de toepassing van deze Overeenkomst worden onder „uitkeringen” mede verstaan alle aanvullingen of bijslagen.

  • 4 De termen „onderdanen” en „grondgebied” van een Overeenkomstsluitende Partij hebben de betekenis, welke die Partij daaraan heeft toegekend in een tot de Secretaris-Generaal van de Raad van Europa gerichte verklaring, die daarvan mededeling doet aan alle overige Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen.

Artikel 2

  • 1 Met inachtneming van het bepaalde in artikel 9 genieten de onderdanen van een der Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen de voordelen van de wetten en regelingen van elke andere Partij, onder dezelfde voorwaarden als de onderdanen van laatstgenoemde:

    • (a) ten aanzien van de uitkeringen bij invaliditeit op grond van een stelsel met of zonder premiebetaling, mits zij hun gewone verblijfplaats hadden gevestigd binnen het grondgebied van laatstgenoemde Overeenkomstsluitende Partij voordat de ziekte, welke de oorzaak is van de invaliditeit, voor de eerste maal medisch is vastgesteld;

    • (b) ten aanzien van de uitkeringen, welke niet op premiebetaling berusten, mits zij sedert het bereiken van de twintigjarige leeftijd in het geheel gedurende tenminste vijftien jaren binnen dat grondgebied gewoond hebben, er op het tijdstip van de aanvrage om uitkering sedert tenminste vijf jaren zonder onderbreking hun gewone verblijfplaats hebben en er hun gewone verblijfplaats blijven houden;

    • (c) ten aanzien van de uitkeringen, welke berusten op premiebetaling, mits zij verblijven binnen het grondgebied van een der Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen.

  • 2 In alle gevallen, waarin de wetten en regelingen van één der Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen de rechten van een onderdaan van die Partij, die niet binnen haar grondgebied is geboren, aan beperkingen onderwerpen, wordt een onderdaan van elke andere Partij, geboren binnen het grondgebied van deze laatste, gelijkgesteld met een onderdaan van eerstgenoemde Partij, die binnen haar grondgebied is geboren.

Artikel 3

  • 1 Elke overeenkomst met betrekking tot de wetten en regelingen bedoeld in artikel 1, welke gesloten is of gesloten zal worden tussen twee of meer Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen, is met inachtneming van het bepaalde in artikel 9 van toepassing op een onderdaan van elke andere Overeenkomstsluitende Partij alsof hij onderdaan was van één van eerstgenoemde Partijen, voor zover bedoelde overeenkomst ten aanzien van die wetten en regelingen bepalingen bevat ten aanzien van:

    • (a) de aanwijzing van de toepasselijke nationale wetten en regelingen;

    • (b) het behoud van verkregen rechten en van toekomstige aanspraken, in het bijzonder met betrekking tot de regelen inzake de samentelling van verzekeringstijdvakken en van daarmede gelijkgestelde tijdvakken voor de vaststelling van het recht op en het behoud van uitkering en voor de berekening van de uitkeringen;

    • (c) de uitbetaling van uitkeringen aan personen, die verblijf houden binnen het grondgebied van één der Partijen bij die overeenkomst;

    • (d) de aanvullende regelingen en de uitvoeringsvoorschriften met betrekking tot de in dit lid bedoelde bepalingen van die overeenkomst.

  • 2 Het bepaalde in het eerste lid van dit artikel is slechts van toepassing op enigerlei bepaling van genoemde overeenkomst betreffende uitkeringen, welke niet gegrond zijn op premiebetaling, indien de betrokken onderdaan sedert het bereiken van de twintigjarige leeftijd in het geheel gedurende tenminste vijftien jaren verblijf heeft gehouden binnen het grondgebied van de Overeenkomstsluitende Partij, aan wier wetten en regelingen hij aanspraak wil ontlenen, en indien hij er op het tijdstip van de aanvrage om uitkering sedert tenminste vijf jaren zonder onderbreking zijn gewone verblijfplaats heeft.

Artikel 4

Behoudens het bepaalde in de toepasselijke bilaterale of multilaterale overeenkomsten worden de uitkeringen, welke bij het ontbreken van deze Overeenkomst niet konden worden toegekend of zijn geschorst, op een desbetreffende aanvrage toegekend of hervat met ingang van de dag van inwerkingtreding vam deze Overeenkomst voor alle betrokken Overeenkomstsluitende Partijen, mits de aanvrage wordt ingediend binnen een termijn van een jaar, te rekenen van die dag, of binnen een langere termijn, welke kan worden vastgesteld door de Overeenkomstsluitende Partij, aan wier wetten en regelingen een aanspraak wordt ontleend. Indien de aanvrage niet binnen een zodanige termijn is ingediend, worden de uitkeringen toegekend of hervat uiterlijk met ingang van de dag van indiening der aanvrage.

Artikel 5

De bepalingen van deze Overeenkomst laten onverlet de bepalingen van nationale wetten en regelingen, van internationale verdragen of van bilaterale of multilaterale overeenkomsten, welke voor de rechthebbende gunstiger zijn.
