What to Do in the Event of Death

Surviving Spouse’s Pension

If you are the spouse of a deceased person who has contributed sufficiently to the Québec Pension Plan, you may be eligible for the surviving spouse’s pension. 

You will be recognized as the surviving spouse if the deceased contributor was:

  • married or in a civil union with you;
  • your de facto spouse, with no lawful union. (see the conditions)

The surviving spouse's pension  is taxable and payable as of the month following your spouse’s death.
