Dear Doug, great and useful contributions, thank you very much. My case is this: worked in Romania for ten years between 1990 and 2000, lived and worked in Canada for six years (all taxes paid), from 2001 to 2006, then moved to Romania to be my aging parents, where I have since my residency and work. Question 1: Given that the international social security agreement with Romania will come into force on 01.11.2011, does it apply retroactively if the aforementioned six Canadian years are taken into account (and into account)? This is intended for totalization in both countries, I would decide to apply at the age of 65. Maybe it`s Romania. Question 2: What Canadian pension benefits would I be entitled to if I added up the three contribution segments? Hello Michael – I`m sorry, but my expertise is really limited to CPP and OAS services and understanding the impact of these international agreements on social security on the right of people to benefit from these two programs. I am pleased to hear that my article has helped you become aware of your AVANTAGES in the United States. Other issues I have, Canada had a social security agreement with Hong Kong after British rule (before 1997), it would be applicable, and help it fulfill the 10 years of legal residency required in Canada to collect the OAS? 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. Revenue Canada would be the authority in this area. Albanians will have the opportunity to collect the Canadian pension, even if they decide to live in Albania and will therefore not lose any rights.
This agreement will benefit 60,000 Albanians and Canadians. Since 2015 and beyond, Albania has signed agreements with seven European countries and is currently negotiating with four other countries where Albanian citizens live and work. 1 For the agreement on the protection of social security between the Republic of Albania and the government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, signed by the Albanian parliament by Law 42/2015 (published in the Official Journal (Fletorja Zyrtare) no
