Greetings Members!

For more than 2 years Democrats Abroad Canada has been pleased to make available informational webinars on Tax Filing for Americans living in Canada, Estate Planning, and Operating a Corporation as a US Citizen in Canada.

Over that time, it has been our goal to expand on those topics with information relevant to you being an American living in Canada. No one hands you a book as you cross the border covering topics such as obligations you still have as a U.S. citizen living in Canada, or how to access the social security your eligible for from back home.

Today I’m excited to announce that in addition to SKL Tax, Democrats Abroad Canada has partnered with BDO Canada to bring you additional webinars covering topics such as government pensions, youth immigration, and private pensions.

Our first webinar will be Navigating Canadian and U.S. Entitlement Programs for Americans living in Canada, being offered on Tuesday Aug. 29th and Wednesday Sept. 6th - a topic of great interest to many members.

Canada and the U.S. each have their own social security programs which provide benefits to retirees who contribute to the programs during their working lives or to those who simply reside in the country. However, a number of questions arise when an American moves to Canada having contributed to both countries’ social security programs. Are they eligible to collect benefits? Can they “double-up” by collecting from both countries? How are the benefits taxed?

Join us for an informative webinar where we will answer these questions and more.

Topics covered include:

· Program overview and eligibility requirements for the Canada Pension Plan, Canadian Old Age Security, and U.S. Social Security

· Impact of Canada - U.S. Totalization Agreement on social security contribution requirements and eligibility for benefits

· Canadian and U.S. taxation of social security benefits

· Medical coverage for U.S. citizens living in Canada
