Hello James – According to OAS legislation, the definition of residency in Canada is “make your home in Canada and live there normally,” so I think she ceased to be resident in Canada when she returned to Hong Kong. I don`t know all the details of the deal with China, but I`m pretty sure it won`t help. There was never an agreement with Hong Kong, neither under British rule nor under British rule. Although these considerations constitute a challenge for the employer, it is important to recognize that there are currently a number of multilateral agreements (EU Regulation 883/2004, Agreement on Social Security of the Ibero-American Organization, etc.) or bilateral aggregation agreements (social security agreements between two countries) in order to dispel fears related to contributions and entitlements to benefits, thus facilitating the employer`s task is what will happen. This article discusses the scope and impact of such agreements in selected countries, as well as the potential social security costs associated with posting a worker to temporary international operations. In situations where there is no aggregation agreement between the two countries, additional costs may be borne by the employer. That extra cost is: Brent – Yes, I`m pretty sure you`ll qualify for U.S. Social Security after the Canada-U.S. agreement. Meeting these minimum contribution requirements is generally not difficult if you have lived in Canada all your life. It is much more difficult when you have moved to or from another country in your lifetime. In the absence of a social security agreement between these countries, citizens may not be entitled to benefits from one or two of these countries.
Although social security agreements vary in terms of coverage, their intent is similar depending on the terms agreed by the two signatories. The main objective of such an agreement is to eliminate the double social security contributions incurred when a worker from one country works in another country and is required to pay social security contributions to both countries whose income is the same. I am a Colombian citizen and have been a permanent resident of Canada for 15 years, I am 55 years old and I intend to continue living in Canada and retire here. However, I worked in Colombia for 12 years, and after coming, I continue to pay for my retirement plan in Colombia. I know there is no agreement between Canada and Colombia. So the question is, when I turn 65, can I receive retirement benefits from Canada and Colombia? because I pay in both systems? Or should I expect Canada to ban me and not allow me to receive my retirement money from my Colombian system? My father is 74 years old. He arrived in Canada 8 years ago (at the age of 66) on a family class sponsorship visa from India. He is currently a Canadian citizen. He has no source of income because he has never worked in Canada. I am only wondering if he has the right to apply for the OAS under the provisions of the international agreement on social security between Canada and India, even though he has not been there for 10 years. Thank you for all your wisdom on this very important subject. I am wondering about the Canada/UK social security agreement.
