When periods of Australian residence and social insurance periods in the agreement country overlap, the country applying the totalisation provisions will count the overlapping periods once only.
Example: Where contributions were made to the Italian scheme from 1980 to 1994 and the claimant for Australian pension was an Australian resident from 1992 to 1996, Australia will use only the Italian contributions from 1980 to 1991 in the totalisation process. These will be added to Australian residence from 1992 to 1996.
