Part IIISpecial Provisions

Section 6Old Age Pension and Survivors' Benefit

Article 20

(1) The provisions contained in Articles 17 to 19 of this Convention shall apply, with such modifications as the differing nature of the benefits shall require, to survivors' benefit.

(2) Where a person is entitled to basic survivors' pension under Norwegian legislation, the rate of the pension shall be calculated on the basis of the actual period of insurance completed under Norwegian legislation and the future insurance period in the same proportion as the actual insurance period bears to the full Norwegian insurance period of forty years.

(3) Where a person would be entitled to receive basic survivors' pension under the Norwegian legislation without recourse to this Convention, and that pension would be higher than the total of pensions payable under the legislation of both Parties by virtue of this Convention, that person shall be entitled to receive a supplement equal to the difference between the pension payable under Norwegian legislation and the total of the pensions payable under the legislation of both Parties by virtue of this Convention. Apart from changes caused by the regular revisions of the National Insurance basic amount, this supplement shall only be recalculated if a new decision concerning the pension is made under the legislation of either Party.

(4) A survivors' pension payable under Norwegian legislation shall be converted into an old age pension when the person reaches the general retirement age. The amount of the old age pension shall at least correspond to the amount of the survivors' pension calculated in accordance with paragraphs (1) and (2) of this Article. However, to the extent that future insurance periods taken into account for calculating a survivors' pension under Norwegian legislation coincide with periods on the basis of which a pension has been calculated under the legislation of the United Kingdom, these coinciding periods shall not be taken into account for the calculation of an old age pension under Norwegian legislation.
