If I understood the situation correctly, Mr Liu was an employee of the CRA, thus he would be eligible for the following benefits:
quoted from Canada Treasury Board: http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/pensions/survivor-survivant-eng.asp#death-deces
In the event of your death, your eligible survivor will be entitled to a monthly allowance equal to half of the pension benefit you would have received before age 65 (calculated before any applicable reduction).
The survivor benefit is payable immediately, regardless of whether you die during employment or retirement. It is fully indexation an annual basis for the rest of your survivor's life. For information on indexation, please refer to the Protection from Inflationsection.
If you marry after retirement, you have the option of requesting a survivor benefit for your new eligible spouse. Your pension will be reduced accordingly.
Your survivor can receive benefits under the CPP/QPP and also receive a full survivor benefit under the public service pension plan.
Your survivor can waive entitlement to a survivor benefit if doing so results in payment of a minimum benefit or a double-rate child allowance. The deadline for waiver of entitlement is three months from the date of notice of entitlement.
In the event of your death, each child will be entitled to 1/5 of the survivor benefit (2/5 if you have no eligible survivor), payable until he/she reaches age 18 (age 25, if the child is a student and meets the eligibility criteria of a child).
The maximum allowance for all children combined is the equivalent of four children's benefits (4/5 of the survivor benefit). If there are more than four eligible children, the maximum combined amount is divided equally among the children.
The child allowance is payable immediately, regardless of whether you die during employment or retirement. Normally it is paid to the survivor. If the children are not living with the survivor, the children's allowance is paid to the person responsible for their custody. Allowances for children over 18 are normally paid directly to them.
The child allowance is fully indexed on an annual basis. For more information, please refer to the Protection from Inflation section.
Supplementary Death Benefit Benefit Amount
The supplementary death benefit is a lump-sum benefit equal to twice your annual salary, payable to your designated beneficiary or to your estate. If that amount is not a multiple of $1,000, your benefit coverage is adjusted to the next highest multiple of $1,000. The benefit amount automatically increases as your salary increases.
I know one of the major union (PSAC) for CRA employees has made a deal with an insurer to provide free death insurance in the amount of $5000 for its members. So I would recommend that, when things are settled, Mrs Bu check with the Union to see if Mr Liu signed up for it.
PSAC Free $5,000.
In terms of $ collection, I think it would be a good idea to have somebody knocking on CRA senior management door. I suspect they would be very sympathetic and would be willing to help out. Let's say if they would be willing to send out a notice, you can imagine the impact...
I could not imagine the impact in terms of $ collection (donation).
wow, 没想到怎么一下子那么多争吵, 估计很快其他论坛都会出现,包括英文的论坛. 真希望不会给家属带来任何负面的影响和压力. 很有意义的一件事, 希望能有个美好的结局.
CRA CS category employees are affiliated with PIPSC... the following is quoted from their sites... hope it helps
Basic Benefit and member contributions
Effective September 14, 1999, the basic benefit is equal to double the employee's annual salary, rounded to the next multiple of $1,000.
Salary - $45,750 $45,750 x 2 = $91,500 - SDB Basic Benefit is $92,000
Salary - $58,500 $58,500 x 2 = $117,000 - SDB Basic Benefit is $117,000
