Legal follow-up

The family advisers at the Coopérative funéraire de l'Outaouais guide you through the first administrative procedures following the death as well as the initial stages of settling the succession.

The declaration of death (Form DEC-100), cancellation of the health insurance card, application for the certificate of death or copy of an act of death, application for death benefits under the Québec Pension Plan (QPP), cancellation of old age security benefit, search for a will, and issuance of attestations of death are some examples of documents that the adviser can take care of, or regarding which he or she can advise or assist you to facilitate your task.

Do not forget that in Quebec the notary is the expert on successions (estates). He or she can advise you, guide you, or do some or all of the work involved in settling the succession. Therefore you should think about seeing your notary. If you don't have one, your cooperative can recommend one for you.
