What should be included in a request to find untraceable members or beneficiaries?

The request to find an untraceable member or beneficiary must contain as much information as possible among the following:

  • given and family names
  • sex
  • date of birth (specify the format to avoid confusion, e.g., year/month/day)
  • Social Insurance Number (SIN)
  • last known address.

The request must also:

  • specify the name and number of the plan under which it is covered
  • be accompanied by the required fees paid to Retraite Québec
  • be filed by the plan administrator
  • be filed with Retraite Québec.

    If the information in the request is in a Word or Excel document, call us to discuss how to send it to Retraite Québec.

Once Retraite Québec has completed its search, it will provide a summary to the plan administrator.

The following template could help you make your request.
