Reimbursement of travel, meal and lodging expenses

Retraite Québec may request an assessment carried out by a physician or health professional of its choosing to determine whether you can receive or continue receiving a disability pension. In that case, Retraite Québec reimburses travel, meal and lodging expenses when you must travel at our request for the assessment.

A personalized reimbursement form will be enclosed with the letter sent to you for an assessment appointment. You can send it to us online or by mail.
