Can seniors over 60 who do business or work still receive a pension?
Your employment records are not a factor in your qualification. You can still get the Old Age Security (OAS) pension even if you have never worked or are still working. If you reside in Canada, you must: be 65 years old or older, be a Canadian citizen or be a legal homeowner when they approve your OAS pension application.
Here is how:
1. You must have lived in Canada for at least ten years since the age of 18, and if you lived elsewhere, you must be 65 years old or older and have been a Canadian citizen or legally lived there before you left.
2. Lived in Canada for at least 20 years since the age of 18.
3. Canadians working outside Canada for Canadian employers, such as the Armed Forces and banks, may have their time working elsewhere calculated as residence in Canada.
