Payment Dates

Are you receiving a pension or benefits paid by Retraite Québec? Would you like to know when upcoming payments will be made? Choose a program to consult one of our general payment calendars or visit My Account to see the your paid or estimated amounts.

Your pension will generally be paid on the last working day of the month.

If you opted for direct deposit, your public-sector retirement pension will be paid on the 15th of each month for the rest of your life. If the 15th falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, your pension will be paid on the preceding business day.  If you opted for payment by cheque, the cheque will be issued no later than 48 hours before that date.

Retraite Québec pays the following benefits 4 times a year:

  • Family Allowance
  • Supplement for Handicapped Children
  • Supplement for Handicapped Children Requiring Exceptional Care

You will receive your quarterly payments:

  • in July for July, August and September;
  • in October for October, November and December;
  • in January for January, February and March;
  • in April for April, May and June.

If you wish to receive your payments on a monthly basis, you must file the Change in Frequency of Family Allowance form.

The Supplement for the Purchase of School Supplies is paid once a year, in July.

Sign up for direct deposit to receive your payments in your bank account.
