Death of a Spouse

What happens upon the death of a spouse who was receiving a pension dies?

When a spouse who was receiving a pension from the construction industry pension plan dies, the CCQ determines whether an amount payable remains. If it does, a lump-sum death benefit is paid to the spouse's estate. A lump-sum benefit is payable in a single amount.

Beneficiaries must notify the CCQ Customer Services of the death as quickly as possible. They will then receive the information and documents needed to help them file for the benefit.

Particular conditions, limitations, or exclusions other than those mentioned above may apply to the payment of certain benefits; only the Règlement sur les régimes complémentaires d'avantages sociaux dans l'industrie de la construction, published by the Éditeur officiel du Québec, has official and legal force.Nevertheless, the provisions that apply to a specific event are those in force at the time of this event.
