BENEFITS UNDER THE LEGISLATION OF QUÉBEC
1.

2. If a person who has been subject to the legislation of both Parties meets the requirements for entitlement to benefits for himself or herself, his or her dependents, survivors, or other rightful claimants under the legislation of Québec without having recourse to the totalization principle set forth in paragraph 1, the competent institution of Québec shall determine the amount of benefits in accordance with the provisions of the legislation that it administers.
3. If the person referred to in paragraph 2 does not meet the requirements for entitlement to benefits without totalization, the competent institution of Québec shall proceed as follows:
(a) it shall recognize one year of contribution if the competent institution of Korea certifies that periods of coverage of at least three (3) months in a single calendar year has been credited under the legislation of Korea, provided that the year in question is included in the contributory period defined under the legislation of Québec;
(b) it shall totalize, in accordance with paragraph 1 of this Article, the years recognized under subparagraph a and the periods completed under the legislation of Québec.

ARTICLE 13
BENEFITS UNDER THE LEGISLATION OF KOREA
1. If a person is not eligible for old-age, survivors or disability benefits under the legislation of Korea based on periods of coverage credited exclusively under the legislation of Korea, the competent institution of Korea shall take into account the person’s periods of coverage credited under the Québec Pension Plan, insofar as they do not coincide, for the purpose of establishing the person’s entitlement to benefits under the legislation of Korea. The preceding sentence shall not apply for the purpose of establishing entitlement to old-age, survivors or disability benefits unless the person has completed at least twelve months of coverage under the legislation of Korea.
2. To qualify for a disability or survivors benefit, the requirement of the legislation of Korea that a person be covered when the insured event occurs shall be considered to have been met if the person is insured for a benefit under the Québec Pension Plan during a period in which the insured event occurs according to the legislation of Korea. The preceding sentence shall not apply for the purpose of establishing entitlement to a disability or survivors benefits unless the person has completed at least twelve months of coverage under the legislation of Korea.
3. In determining eligibility for benefits under this Article, the competent institution of Korea shall credit twelve (12) months of coverage for every year of contributions under the Québec Pension Plan certified as creditable by the competent institution of Québec.

(a) the competent institution of Korea shall first compute a pension amount equal to the amount that would have been payable to the person if all the periods of coverage credited under the legislation of both Parties had been completed under the legislation of Korea. To determine the pension amount, the competent institution of Korea shall take into account the person’s average standard monthly income while covered under the legislation of Korea;
(b) the competent institution of Korea shall calculate the partial benefit to be paid in accordance with the legislation of Korea based on the pension amount calculated according to the preceding subparagraph, in proportion to the ratio between the duration of the periods of coverage taken into consideration under its own legislation and the total duration of the periods of coverage taken into consideration under the legislation of both Parties.
5. Lump-sum refunds shall be granted to a Canadian citizen who is or has been subject to the legislation of Québec under the same conditions as they are granted to Korean nationals. However, lump-sum refunds shall be paid to nationals of a third state in accordance with the legislation of Korea.
