Canada has agreements with more than 50 countries. To find out what these countries are, you can contact Service Canada or visit the Canadian government website. New Zealand and Canada have a social security agreement. The agreement covers Canadian benefits and pensions under the Old Age Insurance Program and the Canada Pension Plan. It also covers the following New Zealand benefits and pensions: all applicants for a pension under the Australian Agreement must meet the other qualifications (e.g.B. age ranges, income or wealth tests) required for this pension under Australian social security legislation. Australian pensions are need-dependent: that is, a wealth test is applied, then an income test is applied and the test that gives the lowest rate is used for assessment. The pension rate is not affected by both income and wealth. Information on the current limits of income and asset testing can be found on the Human Services Department`s website.
If you wish to count your Australian residence as periods of contributions or Canadian residences to qualify for a Canadian pension, only a residence between the age of 16 and retirement age can be considered. The retirement age for men is 65. The retirement age for women is gradually being raised to 65 – see the Department of Human Services website for details of the retirement age for women. Australian pensions for people outside Australia are calculated differently than pensions for those inside Australia.
