My husband and I are Canadian citizens, he has been working for 38 years (he is 54 years old) and I am 18 years old (I am 42 years old) for the same company and I have had other jobs since we were 16 years old. Our company is now transferring us to the United States. Could you please give me some advice on how they can prepare for our pensions not to be affected? Could you send me experts in this area to make sure we don`t miss anything? 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. In certain circumstances, work and income may apply to other governments, from which you can benefit from a similar benefit or pension.
Under the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993, you have the right to request any information we have about you and any correction of that information.
