NOTIFICATION OF DEATH IN SERVICE
The Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC)- Travaux publics et Services gouvernementaux Canada (TPSGC) / PWGSC-TPSGC 2014 is completed when a plan member covered under the public service pension plan dies in service. To ensure that plan members' survivors or their legal representatives receive timely pension benefits information and that Supplementary Death Benefit (SDB) payments are paid quickly, the PWGSC-TPSGC 2014 form should be faxed to the Public Service Pension Centre (Pension Centre or PSPC) as soon as the employer representative is advised of the death of a plan member.
This form is sent to the Pension Centre to advise of a death in service and to indicate the employee's authorized salary rate and any outstanding SDB deficiencies to be recovered from the SDB payment, if applicable.
On receipt of the PWGSC-TPSGC 2014, the Pension Centre will determine eligibility to a SDB payment and will contact the SDB beneficiary directly to advise of the procedures for claiming the benefit. In addition, the Pension Centre will contact the plan members' survivors or their legal representatives to advise of any pension benefits that are payable.
The PWGSC-TPSGC 2014 form should be distributed as follows:
- Original -- Pension Centre
- Copy -- Personnel Office
Crown corporations, agencies and territorial governments not serviced by the Regional Pay System (RPS) must ensure that all portions of the employer representative and Pay Office (PO) sections are completed by the responsible parties.
