“B” represents the portion of the pensionable salary that does not exceed the maximum pensionable earnings within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) and applicable for the year in which the application for redemption is received at Retraite Québec.
The pensionable salary, for the purpose of establishing the cost of redeeming part of a year prior to 1 January 1990, shall be divided by the service credited being redeemed, and the amount resulting from that division shall not exceed amount “M” in the first paragraph.
O.C. 708-94, s. 1; T.B. 202419, s. 1.
2. If the employee retires on the date of his sixty-fifth birthday or after that date, the part of the pension relating to years or parts of a year prior to 1 January 1990 in which the employee was not a member of a pension plan within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. 1 (5th Suppl.)) and that were redeemed shall not exceed the amount obtained by multiplying 2/3 of $1,725 or of the defined benefit limit applicable for the year of retirement under the Income Tax Act, whichever amount is higher, by the number of years or parts of years of service credited under the redemption.
If the employee retires before the date of his sixty-fifth birthday, the part of the pension relating to those years or parts of years shall not exceed the amount obtained pursuant to the first paragraph increased by the amount obtained by multiplying the amount calculated pursuant to section 24 of the Act by the fraction representing the number of years or parts of years of service credited being redeemed over the number of years or parts of years of service referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of that section.
