Following the death of a person, it is possible to obtain from the "Retraite Québec" (board of the Quebec Pension Plan) various types of survivors' benefits according to the personal and family situation of the deceased.
The benefits offered by "Retraite Québec" are: death benefit, surviving spouse's pension and the orphan's pension. Eligibility for such benefits is of course subject to certain conditions including the one that the deceased person must have contributed sufficiently to the Quebec Pension Plan.
The cover letter for a survivors' benefits application, available on this website, will be suitable for most situations.
