Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

If a close relation who dies was receiving assistance under the Social Solidarity Program, you must inform as soon as possible the local employment centre (CLE) or the Services Québec office of the deceased was dealing with of the date of death. 

If the recipient was living alone, the Ministère will cease paying benefits as soon as it is informed of the recipient's death. If the recipient was part of a family, the benefits will continue to be paid for three months following the date of the death. Where applicable the Ministère will calculate the new amount of benefits payable.
