133.1. For the purposes of subparagraphs a and b of the second paragraph of section 133, a surviving spouse has a child of the contributor dependent on him if he resides with that child or maintains him in the conditions provided for by regulation.
Any person who, were it not for his age, would be a child of the contributor and who has been disabled since his eighteenth birthday or since the death of the contributor if, at the time of the contributor’s death, he was 18 years of age or over, is also a child of the contributor.
The surviving spouse and a child do not cease to reside together if their separation is only temporary or is a result of illness or the pursuit of studies or any other cause considered valid by Retraite Québec.
In addition, a child does not lose his status as a child of the contributor solely by reason of his adoption by the surviving spouse or his new spouse.
