What to Do in the Event of Death

Family Allowance

If your spouse or child dies, it could affect the amount of your Family Allowance. Retraite Québec determines the amount of the payment on the basis of family income, conjugal status and number of dependent children, regardless of whether the children are in sole or shared custody.

If the deceased was receiving Family Allowance, the payments will cease. The person who becomes responsible for the child or children must then file a new application. The death of a child affects Family Allowance payments, you must inform Retraite Québec of your child’s date of death.
