Survivors' benefits

We offer a basic financial protection to the family members of a deceased person if he or she contributed sufficiently to the Québec Pension Plan. This financial protection includes 3 types of financial assistance that are part of the survivors' benefits:

  • a death benefit
  • a surviving spouse's pension
  • an orphan's pension

Survivors' benefits may be paid to the family members of the deceased or to third parties, provided the deceased contributed sufficiently to the Québec Pension Plan.
