​Enhancing the Québec Pension Plan: benefits increased this fall

As of this fall, nearly 500 000 beneficiaries of the Québec Pension Plan (QPP) will see their benefits enhanced and will receive a retroactive payment. The adjustment of the monthly payment and the retroactive payment will be made in October or November 2021.

The beneficiaries affected are those who receive a pension that began after January 2019 and for which contributions were paid to the QPP in 2019 and later. The benefits that can be enhanced are the retirement pension, the retirement pension supplement, the surviving spouse's pension and the disability pension.

We wish to remind you that Revenu Québec has been collecting new contributions related to the additional plan since January 2019.


The enhancement of the Québec Pension Plan, in effect since 1 January 2019, will allow for higher benefits in retirement for current and future workers by increasing their retirement savings. It also increases the coverage of disability and surviving spouse's benefits. It harmonizes the QPP with its Canadian equivalent, the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), which was also amended in January 2019.
