NOTE: As the table shows, an American worker employed in Canada can only be covered by U.S. Social Security if he or she works for a U.S. employer. A U.S. employer includes a company organized under U.S. or state law, a partnership if at least two-thirds of the partners are based in the United States, a U.S.-based person or a fiduciary company if all agents are established in the United States. It is also a foreign subsidiary of a U.S. employer when the U.S.
employer entered into an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), pursuant to Section 3121 (l) of the Internal Revenue Code, to pay Social Security taxes for U.S. citizens and residents employed by the subsidiary. Bilateral rehabilitation agreements apply: under the agreement, U.S. Social Security credits concluded after 1965 may be considered in conjunction with CPP or PPH work credits to meet, where appropriate, minimum disability or survival PPC or QPP requirements. However, in order to have the right to have your U.S. assets counted, you must have earned at least one year of credit under the CPC or QPP. It is not necessary to consider U.S. Social Security credits in determining eligibility for CPP or QPP pension benefits, since anyone who has contributed at least to either plan may be eligible for an old age pension at age 65 or a reduced old-age pension from age 60. The Data Protection Act requires us to inform you that we are entitled to collect this information until Section 233 of the Social Security Act.
Although it is not mandatory for you to provide the information to the Social Security Administration, a coverage certificate can only be issued if an application has been received. The information is necessary to enable Social Security to determine whether, in accordance with an international agreement, work should only be covered by the U.S. social security system. Without the certificate, work can be taxed in both the United States and the United States.
