Quebec Pension Plan (QPP) disability benefits


An Act Respecting the Québec Pension Plan


The QPP provides disability benefits to eligible contributors and their dependent children.


To be eligible for disability benefits from QPP, a contributor must reside in Quebec, and have a severe and permanent disability recognized by the Régie's (QPP) medical advisers. The contributor must have made sufficient contributions to the QPP, be under the age of 65, and apply in writing.


The disability pension is a monthly benefit, which consists of a flat-rate component (an amount unrelated to previous earnings, paid to all beneficiaries) and an earnings-related component.

Members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) do not contribute to the QPP even when they work in Quebec.

Members of Reserve Force Class A service do not contribute to QPP; however, they may be contributing through their civilian employment to QPP according to their place of residence. It is necessary to apply for QPP disability benefits in order to receive them.
