If you have contributed to both the Canada Pension Plan and the Croatian pension program, or have lived in Canada and Croatia, This agreement may help you qualify for the following benefits: 1 If a person is not entitled to a benefit under the cumulative time frames under Article 8 of this agreement, the sum of those time frames and the eligible time frames provided by the legislation of a third country, to which both parties are bound by decompaté instruments that provide for the total duration of that benefit, determines that person`s entitlement to that benefit. 5 The competent authorities of the contracting parties may, by mutual agreement, amend the application of the provisions of this article to persons or groups of persons. Under these agreements, Australia equates social security periods/stays in these countries with periods of Australian residence in order to meet minimum qualification periods for Australian pensions. In other countries, periods of Australian working life are generally counted as social security periods to meet their minimum payment periods. Typically, each country pays a partial pension to a person who has lived in both countries. RESOLVED To reach an agreement to this effect and New Zealand has bilateral social security agreements with several countries. Each agreement allows New Zealanders access to certain benefits or pensions in the event of a move to these countries and allows similar rights for people moving from those countries to New Zealand. If you have contributed to the PQ, but not to the CPC, please contact the Quebec Pension Plan. These guides provide additional fees for how you receive benefits or pensions from New Zealand if you have lived in countries with special social security agreements or agreements with New Zealand.
This agreement does not affect the tax privileges of members of diplomatic or consular missions, in accordance with the general rules of international law or the provisions of specific agreements.
