 Lump sum death benefit

Some people may receive a lump sum when a person dies as a result of a criminal offence or voluntary assistance. The lump sum is established after the death has been pronounced or presumed.

The death must be a consequence of the criminal offence or voluntary assistance in order for the lump sum to be paid. The following people may apply:

  • a parent of a deceased minor child or a person who has parental authority over a deceased minor child
  • a parent of a deceased adult child who does not have a partner or a dependent child
  • a parent of a deceased adult child who has a partner or a child, if the parent provided for more than 50% of the deceased person’s needs
  • a child of a deceased parent or person who has parental authority
  • the deceased person’s partner
  • a deceased person’s dependant

A lump sum is granted based on the following situations:

  • Lump sum in the event of death
  • Lump sum established based on the foreseeable consequences the victim would have suffered, when the death occurs more than 12 months after the criminal offence

To learn more about this financial assistance, you can watch the video clip produced by the Ministère de la Justice “Lump sum in the event of death” (French only) in 2021.
