We’re committed to helping your survivors through this difficult time.
When you die, here are some of the things your survivor(s) will have to do:
Call us. Our Pension Benefits Specialist will assist them with all the information they require and guide them through the process of applying for survivor benefits.
Contact the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) to explore potential death and survivor benefits.
Contact your insurance company(ies), if applicable.
Contact your employer to explore any additional death benefits if you were still working at the time of death.
Consider engaging the services of an estate lawyer to assist them with the process.
If you’re the surviving spouse or child of a member of our plan, or the executor of a member’s estate, please call us at 1-800-668-0105.
We’ll assist you with the information you need and guide you through the process of applying for survivor benefits. At this time, you can only report a death by phone.
