    You'll have a hard time cashing the cheque and the Canadian government will not deposit into a Dominican bank, but other than that no difference.

    Is this the taxable one?

    Does enrolling affect your status - I woiuld think not, and you'll lose the withholding tax of 15-18% - whatever it is, huh?

    If you have a Canadian bank account, have it deposited directly and then take it out from any ATM in the DR.
    Not much simpler than that....

    EXCEPT, don't use an "ATM" machine.
    Establish a relationship with a reputable "Casa De Cambio", (Exchange House") near your home here in the DR, and cash your personal checks on the Canadian bank there.
    No chance of "ATM" fraud, VERY common here in the DR, AND, a better exchange rate too!

    Sorry Criss,- doubt the OP will be able to cash a Canadian cheque. Best thing would be to open a USA account with the OP's bank (many Canadian banks do this) then get USA checks and ---no problem at the Casa De Cambio's

    I doubt they will accept any canadian checks....last year when the Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar the banks and casa de cambio were still screwing us out of about 4 or 5 pesos per dollar

She has no Social security number from Canada nor has she ever been there. I downloaded 15 pages from the internet, but this type of thing is not my forte. We went to the Canadian Consulate four times before finally finding them open today. My simple question is : Is she eligible for a pension, never having been in Canada. The woman at the consulate says she has no idea and sent me to the internet. Does any one know? I have had three Canadians all presently in Canada tell me they'd call and ask, but they never get around to it.
    Thanks

    how long were they married and does she have a marriage license?
