Notifying Retraite Québec of the Death of a Beneficiary of a Retirement Pension from the Québec Pension Plan

Any member of the family of the deceased person or anyone concerned.

To notify Retraite Québec of the death of a beneficiary of a retirement pension, nothing need be done if the death occurred in Québec. The death will be reported to the Directeur de l’état civil, who notifies Retraite Québec automatically.

If the death did not take place in Québec, contact Retraite Québec and provide a proof of death.

Pension Paid by Cheque
Any cheque sent to the deceased beneficiary must be returned to Retraite Québec, which will then issue a new cheque made out to the order of the succession.

Pension Paid by Direct Deposit
If, at the time of death, the benefit was already deposited in the account of the deceased beneficiary, once the financial institution has been informed of the death it will remit the amount to Retraite Québec. The latter will then issue a new cheque made out to the order of the succession.
