For the United States, the agreement includes Social Security taxes (including Medicare`s U.S. share) and social security, disability and survival benefits. It does not cover benefits under the U.S. Medicare program or the security supplement. For Canada, the agreement applies to Canada`s old age insurance program and pension plan. The agreement with Quebec applies to Quebec`s retirement plan. 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 salutes S.S.Dhindsa If you have contributed to both the Canada Pension Plan and the Philippine retirement program, or if you have lived in Canada and the Philippines, can this agreement help you remember: Hello SKK – Why are you checking your right under the agreement? If you have lived in Canada for more than 10 years after the age of 18 and have been living here now (and for a year?) and are over 65, you are entitled to the OAS without having to use the agreement. Your question is irrelevant if your facts are correct. 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 Abraham – Is this considered taxable income? If so, it would probably have an impact on your GIS, whether or not there is a social security contract. This would only affect your OAS if your net taxable income was above the clawback threshold (approximately $74,000 per year). I was born in 1965 and grew up in Canada. I have my diplomas (undergrad und Recht) in Canada. I moved to the United States in 2000 (I was 35 years old).
To my knowledge, I do not have the «20 years after 18 years» conditions to be able to claim the OAS. But I think there is a provision in the agreement between the United States and Canada, which is that it will count my years in the United States so that I can meet the 20-year requirement. 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. Dear Doug, I worked for seven years in the British social pension system and worked for seven years before immigrating to Canada. Since my retirement date is scheduled for next month, two months ago, I filed my social pension application form in the UK to tell me that I am not eligible (at least 10 years) because of an insufficient contribution. I was also told that I could not take advantage of the contribution made to the CPC and the OAS of Canada to increase the United Kingdom`s qualification year to 10 years, when both countries have some sort of response agreement. Is there a recourse I can take to allow me to compensate for 7-year contributions to the UK pension plan? It seems so unfair not to be able to get back some of my money.
