Retirement Pension Paid under the Québec Pension Plan
A member of the deceased person’s family or any interested party.
To notify Retraite Québec of the death of a beneficiary of a retirement pension, no particular action is required if the death occurred within Québec. In such event, the death is reported to the Directeur de l’état civil who notifies Retraite Québec and provides it with the required information. If the death occurs outside Québec, Retraite Québec must be notified and provided with a death certificate or a copy of the declaration of death. Pension paid by chequeAny cheque made to the deceased must be returned to Retraite Québec, who will then issue a new cheque to the succession. Pension paid by direct depositIf at the time of death, the monthly pension has already been deposited into the deceased beneficiary’s account, the financial institution, once advised of the death, returns the amount to Retraite Québec, who will then issue a new cheque to the succession.
