What to Do in the Event of Death

Social Solidarity Program

If a close relation who dies was receiving assistance under the Social Solidarity Program, you must inform the ministère du Travail, de  l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale of the death. 

If the recipient was living alone, the Ministère will cease paying benefits as soon as it is informed of the recipient's death. If the recipient was part of a family, the benefits will continue to be paid for three months following the date of the death. Where applicable the Ministère will calculate the new amount of benefits payable.

If you completed the Application for the simplified forwarding of information relative to death, the Directeur de l'état civil will provide the Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale with the information concerning the death.
