What is the role of the points of contact?
Where this refers to the assisting authorities, they help claimants by forwarding claims to the competent decision-making authorities.
Will this authority translate the supporting documents, if the outgoing claim needs this? If so, who pays for this?
Although there is unfortunately no provision for this in Directive 2004/80/EC, the German assisting authority often pays for translations when these are necessary.
Are there administrative or other charges to be paid when the claim is sent abroad?
