Hello, Doug, your help will be greatly appreciated. I am 15 years old, I live in Courtice, Ontario. My question is about the survival pension. My father is dead, and apparently I can apply for this pension here in Canada and in my father`s country, Chile. My father worked in Chile for a short time, when he was young, before coming to Canada as he did 50 years ago. Both pensions work the same way. Being a student until I`m 24. Can I receive both reversion pensions? (My mother divorced my father, at least for the survival pension in Chile, she is not eligible). If I apply for the pension in Chile via Service Canada (Chile and Canada have an agreement), how does it work? If I am ashamed in Chile, I must, among some documents they ask, obtain Chilean nationality, which I do not have about it.
To do this, I also need a Chilean identifier, similar to our SIN, whose number is used for almost everything in Chile. So, just to begin with, I should get these two things through the Chilean Consulate in Toronto. If I apply for the survival pension in Chile via Canada, would it be the same with respect to the necessary documents, which means that I still have to do the same at the consulate mentioned above? That`s what I want to avoid. Assuming I apply to Canada, how does the payment of Chile`s benefit work? I would not worry about paying from here. The Chilean institution sends money to Canada and Canada pays me? I guess some things, as you can see, do not know, for example, whether I can get both pensions. If only one pension was allowed, how or who decides? If I stay with the Chilean pension because the monthly payment is more than the pension here in Canada, Canada enters it, with the exception of the tax issue? Doug, right now, I don`t know what to do. I asked a few questions about it by phone in Ottawa (International Division Human Resources and Development) and they have no idea about the case. You told me about an application to be filled out, but that is not enough. Unfortunately, at this time, I cannot personally go to the Service Canada office for the virus, and apparently no one knows when it will end. I`m just trying to find out things in advance for the day when I can start filling out the paperwork, if you know what I mean. I think the only person who can help me is someone like you that I was lucky enough to find on the Internet. I do not know if possible, but I would like to know that you advise and recommend.
This is a unique opportunity that would give me the chance to follow what I want to go to a medical school. Doug, thank you again and take care. No doubt, the virus is a killer. The bilateral social security agreement with Chile began on 1 June 2015. This guide has been updated to include Chile in the list of non-EEA countries that have a reciprocity agreement with the United Kingdom. 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. New Zealand has social security agreements with Australia, Denmark, Greece, Jersey and Guernsey, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. You must re-apply for your New Zealand allowance or annuity under the corresponding agreement if you move to one of these countries. For migrants subject to reciprocal agreement, contributions to social security authorities in the United Kingdom and the country of origin under the agreement are counted when determining the right to benefits payable by each country. The agreement contains detailed rules for different types of benefits and information on whether a worker is receiving benefits from the UK or his country of origin. I was born in 1965 and grew up in Canada. I have my diplomas (undergrad und Recht) in Canada. I moved to the United States in 2000 (I was 35 years old). To my knowledge, I do not have the “20 years after 18 years” conditions to be able to claim the OAS.
