If you have participated in both the Canada Pension Plan and the Belgian pension program, or if you have lived in Canada and Belgium, this agreement can help you in ensuring: 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. How does the U.S. Social Security disability work with the ODSP and the CPC? Our parent travels to be with us. They were disabled from birth and received SSDI. Can they be on both (for the medical part of ODSP). How would that work? CETA is a modern and progressive agreement for free and fair trade, with high standards, that respects the common values between Canada and the European Union, including Belgium. Before you leave, you need to check with the relevant institutions to find out what formalities you need to complete in order to receive your social security benefits or to receive social benefits. 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. Thank you for your most cordial attention and help, your really, Charles Yu Hi Pedro – you are right that she might be able to take advantage of the Canada/Brazil agreement to qualify for a 13/40th OAS partly aged 65 or older, but the allowance if a person is considered to be resident in Canada, regardless of the number of years spent in her stay. A bilateral youth mobility agreement allows young Belgians to travel to Canada for up to a year and young Canadians to Belgium to travel, work or study and discover. Good morning, Carolyn — your SS advisor was wrong, at least from a Canadian perspective. Your CPP pension is based on your total cpp income, which is over 39 years on average (if you take it at age 65) and your U.S. income will be absolutely insignificant. Where the Canada-U.S. agreement can come into play, the question is whether you are eligible for the OAS. This is because it can help you meet the minimum residency requirement of 10 or 20 years to qualify for the OAS, but it has no influence on the amount of your OAS.
Here`s an off-wall question for you… I worked 28 quarters in the U.S. – the balance of my working life was in Canada (I`m 74 years old). I collect OAS/CPP…. The international agreements I recently signed have allowed me to obtain rights based on my work history. During my investigations, I could see that my contributions to US Soc Sec amounted to a total of $34,000.00 (USD), plus my employer made the same….. That was in 2009, when I came back to Canada. For almost 10 years, $68,000.00 has been sitting in the American SocSec pool…… I am grateful to have been qualified for the benefits of SocSec us, but the fact is that $68,000 – interest over 9 years was rightly mine – partial benefits for my working time in the United States. But my question is this: shouldn`t there be a contract or process that would allow me to recover the essential contributions I made to Medicare unemployment insurance, which I was not allowed to use as a NT worker? It just seems that these funds were once again part of the benefits package that me and my employer were… Are you aware of this situation? Any guide would be helpful.
