Partition of Benefits Accrued in a Public-Sector Pension Plan after a Separation

Requesting a Statement of Benefits Accrued in a Public-Sector Pension Plan

To request a statement of benefits accrued in a public-sector pension plan (PSPP), either spouse or his or her representative (lawyer, notary or accredited mediator) should proceed as follows:
  1. Complete the appropriate form (in French only): either Application for a Statement of Benefits — Married or Civilly United Spouses, or Application for a Statement of Benefits — De Facto Spouses.
  2. Attach the required documents to the form.
  3. Send both to Retraite Québec.
  4. Complete the form Guide to the Application to Request Participation Data from an Employer and send a copy to each employer concerned. The employer will send the form to Retraite Québec.
Even if a spouse contributes or has contributed to more than one PSPP, only one application is needed to receive a statement of benefits. However, if both spouses contribute or have contributed to one or more PSPPs, they must apply separately.
 
Note
If, before the date of the assessment of benefits, you received a retirement pension or disability pension from a PSPP, you do not have to complete the form Application to Request Participation Data from an Employer.
