Check surviving spouse's pension entitlement

The surviving spouse can receive survivors' pension if the marriage was entered into before the primary beneficiary turned 65. When the deceased person and his/her spouse have no common children, there are conditions on the granting of survivors’ pension related to the widow(er)’s age, marital status and duration of marriage. A common-law spouse is not entitled to a survivors' pension.
