|U.S.-Swedish Supplementary Agreement||A Supplementary Agreement revising the U.S.-Swedish Social Security agreement is effective November 1, 2007 . This supplementary agreement revises the U.S.-Swedish Social Security agreement that has been in effect since 1987. The supplementary agreement amends the original agreement to update and clarify several of its provisions to take account of changes in U.S. and Swedish laws which have occurred since the original agreement was signed. The primary purpose of the supplementary agreement, however, is to revise the original U.S.-Swedish totalization agreement to take into account a major reform of the Swedish Social Security pension system that was enacted several years ago.

U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic Richard W. Graber and Pter Nečas, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Labour and Social Affairs of the Czech Republic, signed a U.S.-Czech Social Security Agreement during a ceremony held in Prague, Czech Republic, on September 7, 2007.

The U.S.-Japanese Social Security agreement entered into force on October 1, 2005.
