Calculating your retirement benefits when you live and work outside of France
When you work abroad, the amount of time that you worked could be counted differently depending on the country in which you worked.
The calculation of your retirement benefits could take into account the time you spent working abroad if you worked in a country that is covered by European legislation, or in a country that has signed a social security agreement with France. This is the case of the United States.
