Hello Gordon – I`m not a Social Security expert in the U.S., but I think you`ll be eligible for some if you`ve contributed for at least 10 years. Hello Bee – Yes, if he works in Canada and contributes to the CPC, he is entitled to a CPC pension. If he contributes the maximum for each of the next five years, his monthly CPC at age 70 would be about $243. If he has at least 5 years of U.S. Social Security contributions, that should mean that you are entitled to CPC survival benefits and you may also be eligible for life benefits as part of his U.S. Social Security. Hello. I am Canadian and have worked in Quebec for 40 years. I have been living in the United States for 6 years and plan to return to Canada. When I apply for my Quebec pension, do you know if what I contributed to the U.S. Social Security will be used to calculate my last pension benefit in Quebec? I am a U.S. citizen and Canadian permanent resident who worked in the United States for 17 years before moving to Canada with my family in 2012.
I intend to leave the CPC full-time next year with 5 years of contributions. Assuming that I could use my work history in the United States to obtain eligibility under the U.S.-Canada agreement, how would my benefit amount be calculated? I ask the question because I am trying to determine the relative benefits of the U.S. Social Security benefit over the KKPp benefit. The SS consultant I spoke with said that I could only get benefits under one of the two plans, not both. My annual income in Canada is about $80,000 to $90,000 a year. In the last 6 years 6 pre 7 of my years in the U.S. my income was comparable to this one, but it was much lower upstream and the total amount I will receive from SS is relatively small because they calculate benefits on the basis of an average over a number of years. I suppose I would do better under CPC, but I do not know how my amount of benefits would be calculated here in Canada. Perhaps you could let me know.
Thank you very much. Australia currently has 31 bilateral international social security agreements. Hello Binu – I am not an expert on the contribution aspect of one of the agreements, but I think there are very limited options, depending on your status in Canada and the type of employer you work for.
