Canada currently has international social security agreements with more than 50 countries. These agreements coordinate retirement programs for people who have lived or worked in two countries. My question relates to the definition of “lawful domicile” when applying for an AEO. Did her legal stay end when she returned to Hong Kong with her son, when they sold their home in Toronto, when she broke up with her husband or when they divorced? This is important so that she can accurately calculate whether she is completing the 10 years of “legal residence in Canada” required to collect the OAS and possibly gis. Hello June – Yes, you should be able to qualify for U.S. SS services under the Canada-U.S. Agreement, and this does not affect Canada`s CPP or AEO performance. I can`t comment on your permission for Medicare. Hello Doug, I am a dual citizen of the United States and Canada. I have enough point is the American system for SS, I moved to Canada and I haven`t worked in the last 10 years. My 30-year-old husband has left me, and we`re going to get divorced — I know I`m going to have 5 of his 10 years at CPP, and I`m probably going to work now at the age of 51 – 70+. But I don`t do the maximum every year for the CPP point.
Do I qualify for the CPP? And how will nigiblity evolve for both the SS and the CPP? Do they pay a little each, can I get two retirements? I know you can`t immerse yourself twice and maximize both, but am I being punished for a certain amount of time in any system? Hello Doug, I moved from Romania to Canada in 1996. Canada has signed social security agreements with Romania. I am 59 years old and I plan to retire at 65. I have a question about the postponement of the OAS; Most of the available information says so: for each month of “valid” deferral, your AEO pension is increased by 0.6%. The maximum deferral is 5 years, which would increase your OAS pension by 36%. DETERMINED to collaborate in the field of social security, I moved to the UK in 2009-2010 and worked for a whole year (Oct until October on a work visa). I contributed to their national insurance for the UK financial years 2009/10 and 2010/11 (since their exercise is at the end of April). .
