Article 15
Residence in the other State than the competent State
1. Persons who reside in the territory of the Contracting Party other than the competent State and who satisfy the conditions for entitlement prescribed by the legislation of the latter State, regard being had, where appropriate, to the provisions of Article 14, shall receive in the territory of the Contracting Party in which they reside:
a) benefits in kind, provided at the expense of the competent institution by the institution of the place of residence in accordance with the provisions of the legislation which the latter institution applies, as if these persons were affiliated to it;
b) cash benefits, paid by the competent institution in accordance with the provisions of the legislation which it applies, as if these persons were resident in the territory of the competent State.
2. The provisions of the preceding paragraph shall, in respect to benefits in kind, apply by analogy to members of the family who are resident in the territory of a Contracting Party other than the competent State in so far as they are not entitled to such benefits under the legislation of the State in whose territory they reside because of a gainful occupation or because of their receiving a social security benefit of the Party in whose territory they reside.
Article 16
Transfer of residence without entitlement to benefits under the legislation of the new State of residence
If a person who has been insured under the legislation of one of the Contracting Parties is transferring his residence to the territory of the other Party, but does not satisfy the conditions for entitlement to benefits under the legislation of the latter Party, and if that person would still be entitled to such benefits under the legislation of the first Party if he were residing in the territory of that Party, such entitlement will nevertheless be retained.
In that case Article 18, paragraphs 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 will be applicable by analogy.
Article 17
Temporary stay in or transfer of residence to the competent State
Persons or the members of their family referred to in Article 15, who are staying in or transferring their place of residence to the territory of the competent State shall receive benefits in the territory of the competent State, in accordance with the provisions of the legislation of that State, even if they have already received benefits for the same case of sickness or maternity before their temporary stay, respectively their transfer of residence; if the legislation applied by the competent institution provides for a maximum period for the provision of benefits, the period in which such benefits have been provided immediately before the transfer of residence will be taken into account.
Article 18
Stay outside the territory of the competent State – return to or transfer of residence to the territory of the other Contracting Party during sickness or maternity – provision of major benefits
1. A person who satisfies the conditions for entitlement to benefits under the legislation of one of the Contracting Parties will be entitled to such benefits during a temporary stay in the territory of the other Contracting Party when his condition necessitates immediate provision of medical care.
2. A person who is entitled to benefits at the expense of an institution of one of the Contracting Parties and who resides in the territory of that Party, retains that entitlement when he transfers his residence to the territory of the other Contracting Party.
However, before the transfer the person concerned will have to obtain the authorization of the competent institution. Such authorization may be refused only if it is established that movement of the person concerned would be prejudicial to his state of health or the receipt of medical treatment.
3. When a person is entitled to benefits in kind according to the provisions of the preceding paragraphs, these benefits shall be provided at the expense of the competent institution by the institution of the place of temporary stay or residence according to the provisions of the legislation applied by the latter institution, as if the person concerned were affiliated to it. The period during which such benefits are provided shall, however, be that laid down under the legislation of the competent State.
4. In the cases referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 of this Article, the supply of prosthesis, major appliances or other substantial benefits in kind – except in case of absolute urgency – will be subject to the condition that the competent institution will give its authorization.

Article 19
Benefits in kind for pensioners and the members of their families
1. Where a person receiving pensions under the legislation of both Contracting Parties is entitled to benefits in kind under the legislation of the Contracting Party in whose territory he is resident, such benefits shall be provided to him and the members of his family by the institution of the place of residence at its own cost, as if he were a pensioner under the legislation of the latter Party only.
2. Where a person receiving a pension under the legislation of one Contracting Party resides in the territory of the other Contracting Party and he is not entitled to benefits in kind under the legislation of the latter Contracting Party, the institution of the place of his residence provides according to the legislation which it applies, and at the expense of the competent institution, this person and the members of his family with benefits in kind to which this person is entitled under the legislation of the first Contracting Party or would be entitled if he were to reside in its territory.
3. Where the members of the family of a person receiving a pension under the legislation of one Contracting Party or pensions under the legislation of both Contracting Parties are resident in the territory of a Contracting Party other than that in which the pensioner himself resides, they shall receive benefits in kind as if the pensioner were resident in the same territory, provided that he is entitled to such benefits under the legislation of a Contracting Party.
These benefits shall be provided at the expense of the competent institution by the institution of the place of residence of the members of the family according to the provisions of the legislation which it applies, as if they were entitled to such benefits under that legislation.
4. If the members of the family referred to in the preceding paragraph transfer their residence to the territory of the Contracting Party in which the pensioner resides, they shall be entitled to benefits in kind in accordance with the legislation of that Party, even if they have already received such benefits for the same case of sickness and maternity before transferring their residence.
5. A person receiving a pension under the legislation of one Contracting Party and who is entitled to benefits in kind under the legislation of this Contracting Party, shall as well as the members of his family, be entitled to such benefits during a temporary stay in the territory of the Contracting Party other than the one in whose territory they reside, when their condition requires the immediate provision of such benefits.
6. In the case referred to in the preceding paragraph, the benefits in kind shall be provided at the expense of the institution of the place of residence of the pensioner or the members of the family, by the institution of the place of temporary stay, according to its legislation, as if the person concerned were entitled to such benefits under this legislation.
The period during which these benefits are provided shall, however, be that laid down under the legislation of the State of residence. The provisions of Article 18, paragraph 4, are applicable by analogy.
7. Where the legislation of a Contracting Party provides for the contributions to be deducted from the pension payable for the purpose of entitlement to benefits in kind, the institution of the Contracting Party which pays the pension shall be authorized to make such deductions if the cost of benefits in kind is borne by an institution of that Contracting Party by virtue of this Article.
8. The provisions of this Article shall not be applicable to members of the family who are entitled to benefits in kind under the legislation of the Contracting Party in the territory of which they reside because of their gainful occupation or their receiving social security benefit of the Contracting Party in whose territory they reside.
9. The provisions of paragraph 5 of this Article shall not be applicable to persons who are going to the territory of the Contracting Party other than the one in whose territory they reside, for the purpose of receiving medical treatment.

If according to Slovenian legislation the amount of maternity benefit is calculated on the basis of the previous salary of the insured person, the Slovenian competent institution must take into consideration exclusively the salary received by the insured person during his last employment in Slovenia, whereby the average salary of the insured person received in Slovenia is determined as the average salary of the entire prescribed period.
Article 21
Reimbursement between institutions
1. The benefits in kind provided according to this chapter shall be refunded by the competent institutions or, where appropriate, by the institutions of the place of residence, to the institutions who have provided these benefits.
2. The refunds shall be determined and made in accordance with the procedure provided for in the Administrative Arrangement referred to in Article 36, either on production of proof of actual expenditure or on the basis of lump-sum payments.
Chapter 2
COMMON PROVISIONS ON DISABILITY, OLD-AGE AND DEATH
Article 22
Where, under the legislation of one Contracting Party the conditions for acquisition, retention or recovery of the right to a benefit are not fulfilled solely on the basis of insurance periods completed under this legislation the competent institution shall for the fulfilment of these conditions take into account also insurance periods completed under the legislation of the other Contracting Party, unless the periods overlap.
Article 23
The right to a pension according to the legislation of one Contracting Party does not exist if the insurance period completed under this legislation amounts to less than 12 months. This shall not apply if the right to a pension exists solely on the basis of this insurance period.
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SLOVENIAN LEGISLATION
Article 24
1. If the conditions for granting the right to a benefit are fulfilled under the Slovenian legislation also without the addition of insurance periods completed in both Contracting Parties, the competent institution in Slovenia shall provide the benefit solely on the basis of insurance periods completed under the Slovenian legislation.
2. In case a person only complies with the conditions required for the granting of benefits if Article 22 is taken into consideration, the competent institution first calculates the theoretic sum of the benefit to which a person would be entitled as if the entire insurance period taken into account under the legislation of both Contracting Parties was completed under the legislation relevant for him. If the benefit sum does not depend on the insurance period, it is regarded as the theoretical sum.
3. On the basis of the sum from the previous paragraph, the competent institution calculates the actual amount of a benefit which he is obliged to pay out in relation to the duration of the insurance period to be taken into account under the legislation relevant for him and the entire insurance period which is to be taken into account under the legislation of both Contracting Parties.
Article 25
1. For implementing Article 24, paragraph 2, to establish the pension basis according to the Slovenian legislation exclusively the Slovenian pension basis is taken into account.
2. If in the implementing of Article 24, paragraph 3, the entire insurance period which is taken into account under the legislation of both Contracting Parties exceeds the maximum possible insurance period which has been established according to Slovenian legislation for the benefits assessment, the pro rata pension to be paid out is calculated as a relation between the insurance period under Slovenian legislation and the above stated maximum possible number of insurance months.
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NETHERLANDS LEGISLATION
Article 26
Where a person at the time when incapacity for work followed by invalidity occurred, was subject to Slovenian legislation on pensions and entitled to Slovenian invalidity pension, and had previously completed insurance periods under the Netherlands legislation on invalidity insurance, he shall be entitled to a benefit under the latter legislation, calculated according to the rules of Article 27.
Article 27
1. The amount of the benefit referred to in Article 26 shall be calculated in proportion to the ratio of the total length of the periods of insurance completed by the person concerned under the Netherlands legislation after the age of 15 years to the period between the date on which he reached the age of 15 and the date of his incapacity for work followed by invalidity.
2. If, at the time when incapacity for work followed by invalidity occurred, the person concerned was an employed person or a person treated as such, the benefit due shall be determined according to the Disablement Benefits Act of 18 February 1966 (WAO). If not, the benefit due shall be determined according to the Self-employed Persons Disablement Benefits Act of 24 April 1997 (WAZ).
3. As periods of insurance completed under the Netherlands legislation shall be considered:
a) periods of insurance completed under the Disablement Benefits Act of 18 February 1966 (WAO);
b) periods of insurance completed under the Self-employed Persons Disablement Benefits Act of 24 April 1997 (WAZ);
c) periods of employment and periods treated as such completed in the Netherlands before 1 July 1967.

5. In the case referred to in paragraph 2, second sentence of this Article, when an insurance period under the WAZ coincides with an insurance period under the WAO, only the period completed under the WAZ shall be taken into account.

The reduction referred to in Article 13, paragraph 1 of the Law on general old-age insurance (AOW) shall not be applied to calendar years or parts thereof before the entry into force of this Convention during which a married woman or a widow between the age of 15 years and 65 years, residing in Slovenia, was not insured under the abovementioned law in so far as the calendar years or parts thereof coincide with periods of insurance completed during their marriage by her husband under that legislation.
By way of derogation from Article 7 of the AOW, the said woman shall be considered as being entitled to a pension.
3. The reduction referred to in Article 13, paragraph 2 of the AOW shall not be applied to calendar years or parts thereof before the entry into force of this Convention during which the married woman of the pensioner resided in Slovenia between the age of 15 years and 65 years and was not insured under the abovementioned legislation in so far as the calendar years or parts thereof coincide with periods of insurance completed during their marriage by her husband under that legislation.

This authorization ceases on the date of termination of the compulsory insurance of the employed person.

For the spouse of an employed person who was compulsorily insured on or after the date of entry into force of this Convention the contribution shall be determined in accordance with the provisions relating to the determination of the contribution for voluntary insurance under the AOW and the ANW.
6. The authorization referred to in paragraph 5 of this Article shall be granted only if the spouse of an employed person has informed the Sociale Verzekeringsbank (Social Insurance Bank) not later than one year after commencement of the compulsory insurance period of the employed person of the intention to take out voluntary insurance.

Vendar pa mora pristojni nosilec tej osebi predhodno odobriti prenos. Nosilec lahko tako odobritev zavrne le, če je bilo ugotovljeno, da bi preselitev te osebe škodila njenemu zdravju ali zdravljenju.
3. Če je oseba upravičena do storitev v skladu z določbami iz zgornjih odstavkov, storitve zagotovi nosilec v kraju začasnega ali stalnega prebivališča na račun pristojnega nosilca in v skladu z določbami zakonodaje, ki jo uporablja nosilec v kraju začasnega ali stalnega prebivališča, kot če bi bila oseba zavarovana pri njem. Čas zagotavljanja storitev se določi v skladu z zakonodajo pristojne države.
4. V primerih iz prvega in drugega odstavka tega člena je zagotovitev protez, drugih večjih pripomočkov ali drugih večjih storitev razen v nujnih primerih odvisna od odobritve pristojnega nosilca.

19. člen
Storitve za upokojence in njihove družinske člane
1. Če je oseba, ki prejema pokojnino po zakonodaji obeh pogodbenic, upravičena do storitev v skladu z zakonodajo pogodbenice, na ozemlju katere ima stalno prebivališče, nosilec v kraju stalnega prebivališča na svoje stroške zagotovi takšne storitve njej ali njenim družinskim članom, kot če bi bila oseba upokojena le po zakonodaji te pogodbenice.
2. Če ima oseba, ki prejema pokojnino po zakonodaji ene pogodbenice, stalno prebivališče na ozemlju druge pogodbenice in če ta oseba ni upravičena do storitev po zakonodaji te pogodbenice, zagotavlja njej in njenim družinskim članom storitve, do katerih ima pravico po zakonodaji prve pogodbenice oziroma bi jo imela, če bi bilo njeno stalno prebivališče na njenem ozemlju, na stroške pristojnega nosilca nosilec v kraju njenega stalnega prebivališča v skladu z zakonodajo, ki jo uporablja.
3. Če družinski člani osebe, ki prejema pokojnino po zakonodaji ene pogodbenice ali pokojnino po zakonodaji obeh pogodbenic, nimajo stalnega prebivališča na ozemlju iste pogodbenice kot upokojenec, so upravičeni do storitev, kot če bi upokojenec imel stalno prebivališče na istem ozemlju, pod pogojem, da je do takšnih storitev upravičen po zakonodaji ene pogodbenice.
Na stroške pristojnega nosilca zagotavlja te storitve nosilec v kraju stalnega prebivališča družinskih članov v skladu z določbami zakonodaje, ki jo uporablja, kot če bi bili do takšnih storitev upravičeni po tej zakonodaji.
4. Če družinski člani iz prejšnjega odstavka prenesejo stalno prebivališče na ozemlje pogodbenice, na katerem ima stalno prebivališče upokojenec, so upravičeni do storitev v skladu z zakonodajo te pogodbenice, tudi če so jim bile že pred prenosom stalnega prebivališča zagotovljene storitve za isti primer bolezni ali materinstva.
5. Oseba, ki prejema pokojnino po zakonodaji ene pogodbenice in je po zakonodaji te pogodbenice upravičena do storitev, in njeni družinski člani so upravičeni do takšnih storitev med začasnim bivanjem na ozemlju pogodbenice, na katerem sicer nimajo stalnega prebivališča, če njihovo stanje zahteva takojšnje zagotavljanje takšnih storitev.
6. V primeru iz prejšnjega odstavka storitve na stroške nosilca v kraju stalnega prebivališča upokojenca ali družinskih članov zagotovi nosilec v kraju začasnega prebivališča v skladu s svojo zakonodajo, kot da bi bila ta oseba po tej zakonodaji upravičena do takšnih storitev.
Čas zagotavljanja takšnih storitev določa zakonodaja države stalnega prebivališča. Določbe četrtega odstavka 18. člena se uporabljajo smiselno.
7. Kadar zakonodaja pogodbenice določa, da se prispevki, ki se plačujejo za namen upravičenosti do storitev, odtegnejo od pokojnine, je nosilec pogodbenice, ki pokojnino plačuje, pooblaščen, da jih odtegne, če nosilec te pogodbenice na podlagi tega člena krije stroške storitev.
8. Določbe tega člena se ne uporabljajo za družinske člane, ki so po zakonodaji pogodbenice, na ozemlju katere imajo stalno prebivališče, upravičeni do storitev, ker opravljajo pridobitno dejavnost ali prejemajo dajatev iz socialnega zavarovanja pogodbenice, na ozemlju katere imajo stalno prebivališče.

Pravica do pokojnine po zakonodaji ene pogodbenice ne obstaja, če je po tej zakonodaji dopolnjena zavarovalna doba krajša od 12 mesecev. To se ne uporablja, če obstaja pravica do pokojnine samo na podlagi te zavarovalne dobe.
IZVAJANJE SLOVENSKE ZAKONODAJE
24. člen
1. Če so po slovenski zakonodaji izpolnjeni pogoji za pridobitev pravice do dajatve tudi brez seštevanja zavarovalnih dob, dopolnjenih v pogodbenicah, pristojni nosilec v Sloveniji zagotovi dajatev samo na podlagi zavarovalnih dob, dopolnjenih po slovenski zakonodaji.
2. Če oseba izpolnjuje pogoje za dajatve le ob upoštevanju 22. člena, izračuna pristojni nosilec najprej teoretični znesek dajatve, do katere bi oseba imela pravico, kot če bi bila celotna zavarovalna doba, ki se upošteva po zakonodaji obeh pogodbenic, dopolnjena po zanj veljavni zakonodaji. Če znesek dajatve ni odvisen od dolžine zavarovalne dobe, velja kot teoretični znesek.

Drugi pristojni nosilec odtegnjeni znesek nakaže nosilcu, ki je upravičencu izplačal preveč plačani znesek.
