Among the 50 countries are the United States, France, Germany, Australia, Japan and many small countries. Canada has only a limited agreement with the United Kingdom. Let`s move on to how the deal can evolve in a slightly different scenario. In this scenario, the circumstances are as follows: Ms. Jones is a U.S. citizen and a permanent resident of Canada. She has all lived and worked in the United States, with the exception of five years, with plans to continue Canadian residency in the future. At only 5 years of age as a Canadian resident, Ms. Jones did not meet the ten-year minimum residency requirement to obtain a partial oas benefit. However, the agreement makes it possible to trace the history of stay in the United States in order to reduce the total length of stay to the OAS minimum requirement for partial OAS benefits. However, it does not increase the OEA benefit to a higher amount, it simply allows the woman.
Jones, to qualify for an OAS performance, based on the five years she has lived in Canada since the age of 18. As in the previous example, if the agreement had not been concluded, Ms. Jones would not have been able to meet the OAS eligibility requirements. Thank you for all your wisdom on this very important subject. I am wondering about the Canada/UK social security agreement. I am 41 years old and most of my professional life (since 2001), I live and work in Canada. The competent authority of the United States and the authorities of the Canadian provinces may enter into agreements on any social security legislation within the provincial jurisdiction, unless such agreements are contrary to the provisions of this Agreement.
