What to Do in the Event of Death

Retirement Pension from the Québec Pension Plan

Retraite Québec

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 proof of death.
 
Pension Paid by Cheque
Any cheque made out to and sent to the deceased beneficiary must be returned to Retraite Québec. Retraite Québec 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 monthly payment has already been deposited into the account of the deceased beneficiary, the financial institution will remit the amount to Retraite Québec once the institution has been informed of the death. Retraite Québec will then issue a new cheque made out to the order of the succession.
