Hi, my name is***** and I am here to assist you. I am a social security attorney in my private practice – that is ALL I do. Please let me know that my post here is coming through for you by typing a quick reply.
OK, so to be clear, you have an estimated US SS benefit of 1500 from work that you paid SS taxes on, right? You are not yet collecting it.
You also have some Canadian work of about 14 years, that does produce an employer provided foreign (foreign vis a vis the USA) pension of 170-200. And, you expect a Canada government SS benefit of about 100/mo, later, when you retire under those rules, right?
Questions I have for you are: How many years did you work Full time in the US to earn that 1500 estimated US SS benefit?
Also: In your 14 years of working in Canada, did you pay SS taxes on that work?
