When the retired person dies
Québec Pension Plan
Payment of the retirement pension under the Québec Pension Plan ends in the
month following the death of the retired person.
If you are his or her spouse, you may be entitled to a
surviving spouse's pension under the Québec Pension Plan. Be sure to find
out as soon as possible.
Have you filed an application for retirement
pension sharing between spouses? Pension sharing ends at the end of the
month following the death of one of the spouses. The surviving spouse will then
be entitled to the same retirement pension amount, if any, that he or she was receiving
before pension sharing began.
- The federal Old Age Security Pension also stops being paid in the month
following the death.
- The retirement pension under the Québec Pension Plan and the Old Age
Security Pension cannot be transferred to the surviving spouse or the heirs.
