You can also qualify for a partial agreement of the OAS. The OAS is approximately $15.00 per month for each year of stay in Canada after the age of 18 and before receiving the OAS. Maintaining the OAS has no influence on U.S. social benefits. Donna – I`m sorry, but I`m not a Social Security expert from the United States. You should contact them to see how much your SS is being reduced under the WFP. My question is that my stay in Asia can be considered a residence in Canada, based on my relationship with Canada during the absence, so I start getting the OAS in 2020, if I move to Asia, I don`t know any details about U.S. benefits, but the agreement should help you qualify. Here is a web link that could help you clarify things for you: www.ssa.gov/international/Agreement_Pamphlets/canada.html Dear Doug, I worked for 7 years and contributed to the British social pension system 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. Thank you for your most cordial attention and help, your true, Charles Yu I suggest you wait until they have approved or refused your application of the OAS and see what periods they ended that you lived in Canada. If they reject your OAS application solely because of your residency in Canada, you can ask them to review your application under the Canada-India Agreement to see if you qualify for this process. Finally, I know that mainland China has a social security agreement with Canada. What if this agreement made it eligible for the OAS earlier compared to the 10-year rule, given that Hong Kong is now a country (two systems one country)? 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. Will try to ask questions as easily as possible.
Even though I was not born in Canada, my wife became a Canadian citizen when I was a child. We married in 1985 in Canada (her age was 28) she had been working since something before the age of 18. We lived in Canada for another three years, and then we moved to the United States for about three years. Moving to Canada for about 5 years. In 1993, we returned to the United States, where we eventually became American citizens. Is it entitled to the Canadian OAS and, if so, could it guarantee the social security of the United States? I have tried to study it, but I seem to have conflicting answers. I`ve lived most of my life in U. I`m pretty sure I`d qualify for a lot of things in Canada, if at all. Thank you very much. Under a bilateral agreement, you can apply for a Danish pension through the Canadian government if you are a Danish or Canadian citizen residing in Canada and meet certain conditions. If you are a widow, widower or child of someone who has contributed to pension programs in both countries, this agreement can help them qualify for this: I am a Colombian citizen and have been a permanent resident of Canada for 15 years, I am 55 years old and I plan to continue living in Canada and retire here.
