The list of countries with which the Uk has a social security agreement is on GOV.UK. You can also qualify for a partial agreement of the OAS. The OAS is approximately $15.00 per month for each year of stay in Canada after the age of 18 and before receiving the OAS. Maintaining the OAS has no influence on U.S. social benefits. Thank you for all your wisdom on this very important subject. I wonder about the Agreement between Canada and the United Kingdom on Social Security. I am 41 years old and for most of my professional life (since 2001) I live and work in Canada. Good morning, Doug. Thank you for your response. Yes, from 2004 to today, I have continuously maintained a sustainable home in Canada.
I rented between 2003 and 2004 for one year. My missions abroad were an individual status, so neither my wife nor any member of my family moved with me. I didn`t own a house in the foreign countries where I worked – I only rented or I was housed in the operating camps. My accounts and investments stayed in Canada all the time and I paid monthly funds for the cost of living for my family. Because of all these characteristics, my tax advisor concluded that, despite my employment, I had economic, family and residential ties in Canada and therefore was a tax resident. In addition, these characteristics have also allowed me to obtain my public relations status over the years. You can apply to one country and request that your application be considered as a right to benefits from the other country. In this case, your application will be sent to the other country. Each country will process the law according to its own laws, if any, will count the other country`s credits – and inform you of its decision. If you disagree with the decision on your entitlement to benefits under the agreement, contact a U.S. Social Security office or a Canadian social security office.
The people there can tell you what you need to do to appeal the decision. Hello christi – I am not an expert for American SS, but I understand that if you have less than 30 years of significant income with the American SS, and if you receive CPCs or other pensions, then the WEP (Windfall Elimination Commission) will apply, and your American SS will be partially reduced by your CPC.
