The Canadian government`s international social security agreements cover only Old Age Security and Canada`s pension benefits. If you have contributed to the PQ, but not to the CPC, please contact the Quebec Pension Plan. The agreement with Canada helps many people who, in the absence of the agreement, would not be entitled to monthly pension, disability or survival benefits under the social security plans of one or both countries. It also helps people who would otherwise have to pay social security contributions to the two countries with the same incomes. The Social Security Service is doing a good job here to end the various benefits and eligibility. Hello Eric – I don`t know the age rules you can/must make to apply for U.S. Social Security, but I do know that everything you do about your SS doesn`t affect your CPC or your OAS. Therefore, you can apply for your CPC from the age of 60 (at a reduced rate), but the first year you can apply for the OAS is the age of 65. Hello Paul – There are no minimum contribution requirements for CPP pensions, so you are definitely entitled to the CPC at age 65 (or even at age 60 at a reduced rate). To be eligible for the OAS outside of Canada, you will need a minimum of 20 years in Canada after the age of 18. It seems that you are short, but you can qualify under the Canada-U.S. Social Security Agreement. 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 thank you S.S.Dhindsa How does the U.S. Social Security Disability work with ODSP and CPP? 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? The only possibility that an international agreement can help you qualify for a CPP disability pension is to meet the minimum contribution requirement of 4 years of contributions for the last 6 years and an income of at least 10% of the YMPEs for each of these four years. If you sponsor your parents for 10 years, they cannot get social assistance. Is GIS considered social assistance? So they have to wait 10 years before they pass the sponsorship contract before getting giS? 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 see that you are an expert on this subject and enjoy reading your answers to other people`s questions. My wife and I have been Canadian citizens since the mid-1990s, but we have lived in the United States since the late 1990s. While I was earning in the United States and amassing 40 Social Security credits, my wife earned a salary in the United States and lived in Canada for about 4 years. Could his stay of more than 18 years in the United States be used to help him meet the 10-year Canadian residency requirement or the 20-year A-Canada residence requirement for OAS benefits for 20 years? Is the OAS`s power about $578 per person or couple? Is there a chance or risk that the OAS may be reduced/eliminated in the future, especially for Canadian citizens who are entitled to rights in another country such as the United States? That`s how you submit a right to the U.S.
