Notifying Retraite Québec of the Death of a Beneficiary of the Child Assistance Measure, or the Death of the Beneficiary's Spouse or Child

To notify Retraite Québec of the death of a beneficiary of the child assistance measure or the death of his or her spouse, there is no action to take 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.

A person who assumes the care of a deceased beneficiary’s child must file a new application for the child assistance payment, and, if applicable, for the supplement for handicapped children and the supplement for handicapped children with exceptional care needs.

To notify Retraite Québec of the death of the child of a beneficiary:

  • If the death took place in Québec, call Retraite Québec.
  • If the death took place outside of Québec, do one of the following:
    • Fill out the form Change in the Number of Dependent Children – Child Assistance, attach a death certificate or a copy of the act of death, and mail to Retraite Québec.
    • Or, call Retraite Québec and provide a death certificate or a copy of the act of death.
