Following A Death:

that can help you identify what to do when someone passes away.
After Death Benefits:
When your parent or spouse dies you may be eligible for benefits. Service Canada provides a list of benefits that you may be entitled to.
The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) death benefit is a one-time, lump-sum payment made to the estate on behalf of a deceased CPP contributor.
The Canada Pension Plan will cover funeral expenses as a death benefit provided CPP contributions were made by the deceased . The one-time death benefit payment is paid to the deceased’s estate, up to a maximum of $2,500, based on the length of time contributions to CPP have been made.
