Hey, Doug. The question of the method of calculation. I lived in Canada for 15 years during my OAS assistance period, then moved to the United States and worked there for 10 years before moving abroad. I understand that I can receive payments from the OAS on the basis of the agreement that has been reached in that country. But my question is, what do I get paid for? If you have lived in Canada or contributed to Canada`s pension plan and have contributed to the Brazilian pension program, this agreement can help you qualify for: International Social Security Agreements guarantee the provision of social benefits, although this does not change the legislation in the country. Thus, each party to the State party to the contracting state must analyze the claims for benefits submitted and establish the rights and conditions in accordance with the legislation of each country. India and Canada, now have a social security agreement since August 2015. Sir, I have been a Canadian citizen since 2008 and have visited India several times due to property issues, and during my visit I had a stroke twice and was diagnosed with a disability. I don`t have a permanent home in India and I`m on rent to survive as I recently generated business but is still losing out.
The property is still unsold, I have been filling ITax for all the years also explaining my capital gains by form 1135. Now applied OAS paper to Service Canada and awaiting response. In September, I will be 65 years old, family in Canada and home, as for my less days of stay in Canada, I could get social security benefits between Canada and India. Please advise you. Thank you and I greet S.S.Dhindsa I am a U.S. citizen and Canadian resident, who worked 17 years in the United States before moving to Canada with my family in 2012. I intend to leave the CPC full-time next year with 5 years of contributions. Assuming that I could use my work history in the United States to obtain eligibility under the U.S.-Canada agreement, how would my benefit amount be calculated? I ask the question because I am trying to determine the relative benefits of the U.S. Social Security benefit over the KKPp benefit.
The SS consultant I spoke with said that I could only get benefits under one of the two plans, not both. My annual income in Canada is about $80,000 to $90,000 a year. In the last 6 years 6 pre 7 of my years in the U.S. my income was comparable to this one, but it was much lower upstream and the total amount I will receive from SS is relatively small because they calculate benefits on the basis of an average over a number of years. I suppose I would do better under CPC, but I do not know how my amount of benefits would be calculated here in Canada. Perhaps you could let me know. Thank you very much. The main objective of international agreements is to guarantee social security rights to workers, legal family members and the living or visitors to the country, in accordance with the laws of both countries. Hello June – Yes, you should be able to get U.S. benefits under the Canada/U.S. agreement, and this has no impact on your CPP or OAS benefits from Canada.
I can`t comment on your authorization for Medicare. Hello Binu – I am not an expert on the contribution aspect of one of the agreements, but I think there are very limited options, depending on your status in Canada and the type of employer you work for. Revenue Canada would be the authority in this area. Hello Selena – I don`t know anything about social security programs in Colombia, but there are no restrictions in the Canadian system that would prevent you from receiving pensions from both countries. Hello Michael – I`m sorry, but my expertise is really limited to CPP and OAS services and understanding the impact of these international agreements on social security on the right of people to benefit from these two programs. I am pleased to hear that my article has helped you become aware of your AVANTAGES in the United States. If you have social security credits in both the U.S. and Canada, you may be eligible for benefits from one or both countries.
