Notifying the Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale of the Death of a Social Solidarity Program Beneficiary

Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

If the beneficiary lived in a family (see Definitions), benefits continue to be paid for 3 months after his or her death.

If the beneficiary lived alone, no benefits are paid for the months after his or her death. If benefits were being paid by cheque and the one for the month after the death has been received, the liquidator of the succession must return it to the local employment centre (CLE) or Services Québec office that provided social solidarity services to the beneficiary.

To find a CLE or a Services Québec office use the online locator service.

To notify the Ministère du Travail, de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale of the death of a beneficiary of the Social Solidarity Program, contact the Centre de communication avec la clientèle at the Ministère.

This procedure must be carried out, even though the Directeur de l’état civil automatically notifies the Ministère when a death has occurred in Québec.
