The CPP Death Benefit
  • The CPP death benefit is a one-time payment made to the estate of the
    deceased contributor.

  • If the deceased did not leave an estate, then the person responsible for
    the funeral expenses, the surviving spouse or partner or the next of kin
    may be eligible, in that order,to apply for the benefit.

  • The amount of the CPP death benefit depends on how much and for how
    long the deceased paid into the CPP. However, the maximum allowable
    death benefit is $2,500.

  • The CPP Death Benefit is usually paid within 6 to 12 weeks of application.
