Like Social Security, you can start drawing early, 60 years old, but get a bigger performance if you delay. The KKP is also based on the income and contributions that workers and employers incorporate into the system. The longer you earn and work, the higher the benefits.

The OAS is available to Canadian citizens who have lived in Canada for a period of time and who earn less money. In 2019, the maximum OAS power is $607 and your individual income must be less than $125,937. However, to get the maximum OAS benefit, you would have lived in Canada 40 years after the age of 18. You can pick up your OAS at age 65, but you can defer to age 70 and receive a higher payment. The table below shows the different types of social security benefits to be paid in the United States.
