If the deceased worked in Québec, his or her spouse, children or heirs could receive one or more benefits paid under the
Québec Pension Plan.
If the deceased worked in one of those sectors or in the Québec public sector, his or her spouse, children or heirs could receive one or more benefits paid under
Québec public-sector pension plans.
If the deceased worked in the private, municipal or university sector and was a member of a supplemental pension plan offered by his or her employer, his or her spouse, children or heirs could receive one or more benefits paid under

Family Allowance payments could be made to the person who will be responsible for the child.
Family Allowance payments will be maintained during the
quarter in which the child's death occurred.
Although the Directeur de l'état civil informs Retraite Québec of deaths that occur in Québec, it takes time to provide that information.
If you are receiving Family Allowance payments for more than one child, the amount paid for your family might be reviewed following the change in the number of dependent children. Contact us at 1 800 667-9625 to notify us of the child's death.
Please note that a child
who dies in the month of his or her birth is not eligible for Family Allowance payments.
