Social Security Agreement Between Canada And Germany
Thank you for explaining the confusion about all of this. In any event, I will wait a few more years before applying for benefits under one of the two programs. In the meantime, I will rely on the returns on my investments and on American Social Security to finance my part-time work. (h) a request for payment of retroactive voluntary contributions on the basis of this item is submitted within 24 calendar months of the entry into force of this item. The application must be submitted to the social security agency to which the last German contribution was paid or is considered to be paid and which is responsible for the decision on the right to benefits. If the last German contribution has been paid to a miners` pension insurance scheme, retroactive voluntary contributions can only be paid to wage or wage insurance. Contributions are paid to the social security agency responsible for accepting and processing the application. Although the agreement between the United States and Germany authorizes the Social Security Administration to count your German loans to help you qualify for pension, disability or survival benefits in the United States, the agreement does not cover Medicare benefits. Therefore, we cannot count your credits in Germany to justify the right to free Medicare hospital insurance.
Hello Carolyn – With 5 years of maximum contribution to the CPC, your CPP pension at age 65 is about $142 per month. If you were in Canada for 5 years, your OAS at age 65 would be approximately $73 per month (5/40th of the full OAS of $583.74) if you qualify under the agreement. However, it may be advisable to delay your OAS until the age of 70, as it will double during these 5 years and you will be « breakeven » at 75 years. Hello, Doug, my mother will be 20 years old as a legal citizen in Canada. She`s from Guatemala. I called the immigration pension. Someone told me that she could get her old age pension, even if it is not a contracting country, but they will deduct the 30% of the tax. She will be 82 in June. I read the pensions page, but I did not confirm anything. Can you tell me how it works? Thank you Hello SKK – Why do you check your right as part of 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. I am 65 years old and a citizen of two states (United States and Canada) currently lives in the United States. Over the years, I have travelled back and forth between the two countries and have realized that you must have been in Canada at least 20 years after the age of 18 in order for your OAS pension to be payable permanently outside of Canada. The agreement includes social security taxes (including Us-Medicare`s share). Following an endorsement that will begin on 1 May 1996, taxes on the financing of German health insurance and long-term care programmes will also be included. The agreement also applies to social security pension benefits, disability and survivor insurance. It does not cover benefits under the U.S. Medicare program or the ISS (security supplement).
Hello June – Yes, you should be able to get U.S. benefits under the Canada/U.S. agreement, and this has no impact on your CPP or OAS benefits from Canada. I can`t comment on your authorization for Medicare. India-Canada, now have a social security agreement since August 2015.
