Insurance documents

Disability

It you are age 60, on disability and intend to apply for your pension from the Québec Pension Plan (QPP), it is important to obtain information before doing so. In fact, even if your employer or insurer has not yet asked you to apply for the QPP disability pension, they could do so. You cannot receive the QPP retirement pension and QPP disability pension at the same time. You would have to cancel your retirement pension and reimburse money to Retraite Québec. If you are in this situation, contact Retraite Québec or the FIQ Social Security Sector for more information.
