APPLICATION
1. This Regulation applies to the persons who have obtained, before 1 January 1997, under section 101 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), a pension credit attributable to a supplemental retirement plan referred to in Schedule I or II.
It also applies to the persons to whom a pension credit has been granted, before 1 January 1997, after a transfer agreement entered into under section 158 of the Act and referred to in Schedule I.
T.B. 197198, s. 1.
DIVISION II
PENSION CREDITS ATTRIBUTABLE TO A SUPPLEMENTAL PENSION PLAN OR A TRANSFER AGREEMENT REFERRED TO IN SCHEDULE I
2. This Division applies to the persons who have obtained a pension credit attributable to a supplemental pension plan referred to in Schedule I and to those to whom a pension credit has been granted following a transfer agreement referred to in Schedule I.
T.B. 197198, s. 2.
3. The employee who, on 31 December 1999 or after that date, participated in this plan, has the right to be paid his pension credit when, at the moment he ceases to participate, he:
(1)  has reached the age of 60;
(2)  has carried out at least 35 years of service; and
(3)  is eligible to a pension under this plan, under the restrictions of the third paragraph.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the employee may request that his pension credit be granted at a date subsequent to the one on which retires, but without exceeding the date on which his pension credit would have been granted without the reduction provided for in paragraph 3.
The pension credit paid to the employee under paragraph 3 of the first paragraph is reduced during its term, of ⅓ of 1% per month comprised between the date on which it is payable and the closest date on which his pension credit would have been paid under subparagraph 1 or 2 of this paragraph.
T.B. 197198, s. 3.
4. The pension credit is increased, under restrictions of sections 6 to 8, of an amount not exceeding 45% of the annual payable amount.
The pension credit resulting from the application of sections 6 to 8 is divided in two parts, one of which is a temporary annuity, payable up to the last day of the month that the person reaches 65 and the other, a life annuity.
T.B. 197198, s. 4.
5. The increase provided for in section 4 shall be applied to the amount of the pension credit payable on the date that the person, who did not participate in the plan on 31 December 1999, retires and:
(1)  of which the pension credit had begun to be paid; and
(2)  of which the payment of the pension credit had been postponed under section 91 of the Act.
T.B. 197198, s. 5.
6. With regards to the employee referred to in section 3, the increase provided for in section 4 may not have the effect of increasing the pension credit, on the date he retires, to a greater amount:
(1)  for the life annuity part of the pension credit, the amount “MO” resulting from the following formula:
MO = maximum [F1 × N × 2% × TM - (0.7% × N × minimum (MGA; TM)); CR]; and
(2)  for the temporary annuity part of the pension credit, the amount resulting from the formula “M - MO” where:
M = maximum [F1 × N × 2% ×x TM; CR].
Where applicable, the amount of the increase is reduced in order for the life and temporary annuity parts of the pension credit to be equal to the amounts established in subparagraph 1 or 2 of the first paragraph.
T.B. 197198, s. 6.
7. With regards to the employee referred to in section 5, the increase provided for in section 5 may not have the effect of increasing the pension credit, on the date he retires, to a greater amount:
(1)  for the life annuity part of the pension credit, the amount “MO” resulting from the following formula
MO = maximum [F × N × 2% × TM - (0.7% × N × minimum (MGA; TM)) - A1.1; CR]; and
(2)  for the temporary annuity part of the pension credit, the amount resulting from the formula “M - MO” where:
M = maximum [F × N × 2% × TM - A1.1 - B230; CR].
Where applicable, the amount of the increase is reduced in order for the life and temporary annuity parts of the pension credit to be equal to the amounts established in subparagraph 1 or 2 of the first paragraph.
T.B. 197198, s. 7.
8. The increase provided for in section 4 may not have the effect of increasing the pension credit to an amount greater than the one resulting from the application of subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 6, with regards to the person who, on 31 December 1999:
(1)  participated in the plan and ceases to participate before being eligible to a pension under this plan; and
(2)  did not participate in the plan and whose pension credit has not started to be paid without it having been postponed in application of section 91 of the Act.
T.B. 197198, s. 8.
9. For the application of sections 6 to 8:
A1.1 represents, where the person has benefited from the application of section 85.27 or 215.11.8 of the Act, the amount provided for in section 85.27, attributable to the pension credit referred to in this Division, multiplied by  77%;
B230 represents, where the person has benefited from the application of section 85.27 or 215.11.8 of the Act, the amount provided for in section 85.28 of the Act, attributable to the pension credit referred to in this Division, multiplied by 93%;
CR represents the amount of the pension credit payable under section 3 or, in the case of a person who was not an employee on 31 December 1999, payable on the date of retirement and takes into account, where applicable, the applicable actuarial reduction or the increase provided for in section 93 of the Act;
F represents the percentage of actuarial reduction applicable to the retirement subtracted from 1;
F1 represents the percentage of actuarial reduction applicable to the pension credit payable under section 3 subtracted from 1;
N represents the number of years of service attributable to the pension credit referred to in this section;
MGA represents the average of the maximum admissible earnings within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) applicable to the date of retirement; and
TM represents the average admissible salary established in accordance with section 36 of the Act.
T.B. 197198, s. 9.
10. The pension credit for which the payment begins after 31 December 1999 is, after the start of payments, annually indexed, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) to the ratio that the Pension Index bears.
Where the pension credit is indexed under section 107 of the Act, the index rate which is retained is, for the purpose of the first paragraph, the one that is higher.
T.B. 197198, s. 10.
11. The pension credit of the person who, on 31 December 1999, did not participate in this plan and which had started to be paid on that date is, in order to establish the annual payable amount at 1 January 2000, indexed from 1 January 1990 or from the date on which the pension credit started being paid if that date is subsequent, of the Pension Index ratio or, where applicable, of the rate retained for the purposes of section 107 of the Act if it is higher.
Where the person referred to in the first paragraph retired after 31 December 1989 but before the date on which the pension credit started being paid, it is also indexed, according to the rate referred to in the first paragraph, from the date where the person retired up to the one when the pension credit started to be paid.
From 1 January 2000, the pension credit is indexed according to section 10.
T.B. 197198, s. 11.
12. Where, for the purposes of the second paragraph of section 3, the employee has requested that the pension credit be paid to him on a date subsequent to the one when his pension is granted, the pension credit is indexed between the two dates, in accordance with section 10.
T.B. 197198, s. 12.
13. Where the second paragraph of section 92 of the Act applies to an employee referred to in section 3, the increase rate is of ⅓ of 1% per month calculated for each month comprised in the period during which the pension credit is not paid to the employee before he reaches 60 or 35 years of service. Subsequently and until he reaches the age of 65, the pension credit is not increased.
T.B. 197198, s. 13.
14. From the date on which the payment of the pension credit of the employee referred to in section 3 is terminated for cause of death or from the death of the employee eligible to the payment of a pension credit for the purposes of that section, the spouse is entitled to half of the life annuity of the pension credit paid or, if applicable, that the employee would have been entitled to.
The first paragraph also applies, by making the necessary changes, to the spouse of the deceased pensioner.
T.B. 197198, s. 14.
15. The spouse of the person who, on 31 December 1999, did not participate in this plan and dies when a pension credit referred to in this Division is being paid to him under section 91 of the Act, or when that said person is eligible to the payment of the pension credit under that section, is entitled to half of the life annuity of the pension credit or, if applicable, that the person would have been entitled to.
