(b)  indemnity means the indemnity payable to members for sessions of Parliament, but does not include amounts granted as entertainment expenses.
In the case of the members of the Conseil exécutif, the President, the Vice-Presidents of the National Assembly, the Leader of the Opposition, each member to whom paragraph 6 of section 7 of the Act respecting the conditions of employment and the pension plan of the Members of the National Assembly (chapter C-52.1) applies, the parliamentary assistants, the House Leader of the Opposition or of a party contemplated in paragraph 6 of section 7 of the Act respecting the conditions of employment and the pension plan of the Members of the National Assembly, the Chief Government Whip and the Chief Opposition Whip of the National Assembly, the Whip of any party contemplated in paragraph 6 of section 7 of the Act respecting the conditions of employment and the pension plan of the Members of the National Assembly, a Deputy Government House Leader who is not a member of the Conseil exécutif, a Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition Party, an assistant Whip or a member appointed to act as chairman of the select committees, the word “indemnity” also includes, if the holder of the office indicates that he so desires by notice to the Minister of Finance, the supplementary indemnity which he receives by virtue of such indemnity, or a part of such indemnity, for a specified or indeterminate period, from and after the session mentioned in the said notice. He may at any subsequent time, by a similar notice, renounce for the future the addition of such supplementary indemnity to that which he receives as a member, for the purpose of computing his contributions.

R. S. 1964, c. 6, s. 103; 1968, c. 9, s. 40; 1982, c. 62, s. 161.

98. (1)  When the additional contribution provided for in subsection 2 of section 87 has been paid, and subject, where applicable, to the provisions of section 97, the surviving consort, if not divorced, of a former member who was receiving a member’s pension or was entitled to it but died before beginning to receive it is entitled, from the death of such member and for life, to a pension equal to fifty per cent of that which her consort was receiving or was entitled to receive; such surviving consort is also entitled to receive 10% of her consort’s pension for each of the children of such former member dependent on such surviving consort and less than eighteen years of age or, if such child regularly attends an educational institution, less than twenty-one years of age, but he shall not so receive more than 40% of such pension for all such children dependent on him.

If the consort dies or if such former member dies and his consort has predeceased him or their marriage has been dissolved by divorce, each child of such former member who is less than eighteen years of age or, if he regularly attends an educational institution, is less than twenty-one years of age, is entitled to receive 15% of the total amount of such member’s contributions until he reaches the age of eighteen years or, if he regularly attends an educational institution, until he reaches the age of twenty-one years. However, not more than 60% of the total amount of such contributions shall be paid to all such children.

1969, c. 11, s. 7; 1973, c. 10, s. 20.
100.

1982, c. 66, s. 64; 1983, c. 24, s. 86; 1987, c. 109, s. 24.
103.5. The total amount of contributions of a Member that serves as the basis for computing his pension in accordance with section 89 is equal to the total contributions that he has provided before 1 January 1983 adjusted annually, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), according to the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act from 1984 until the time the pension becomes payable.

(1)  the pension recomputed under sections 89 and 103.5; or
(2)  the pension to which he would be entitled at that time if the payment of the pension had not ceased in accordance with section 96.
Computation of the pension is made without considering the effects of the election provided for in section 103.11.
1982, c. 66, s. 64.
103.7. For the purposes of the application of the second paragraph of section 90, the duties contemplated in paragraphs 13 and 14 of section 7 of the Act respecting the conditions of employment and the pension plan of the Members of the National Assembly (chapter C-52.1) are added to the duties contemplated in the second paragraph of section 90.

The pension of the surviving spouse is equal to the amount of the pension to which he is entitled, taking into account the adjustment resulting from the actuarial equivalence as established according to the criteria prescribed by regulation of the Office.
The election extinguishes the right to a pension provided for in section 98.

If the allowance is equal to or less than the pension, the pension is payable at the time that the Member entitled to it ceases to be a Member of the National Assembly, except if the beneficiary is 71 years of age or over.
The payment of the pension extinguishes the right to a transition allowance contemplated in the Act respecting the conditions of employment and the pension plan of the Members of the National Assembly that would have been payable at the time the Member ceases to be a Member of the Assembly, except if the beneficiary is 71 years of age or over.
1982, c. 66, s. 64; 1986, c. 114, s. 1; 1987, c. 109, s. 28.

The criteria, conditions and terms of payment of such additional contribution shall be established by regulation of the Office of the National Assembly.
Such a contribution may be repaid in accordance with sections 92 and 93.
1982, c. 66, s. 64.
103.16.

However, the contributions refunded under those sections must be remitted while the Member holds office.
1982, c. 66, s. 64; 1983, c. 24, s. 87.
103.17. A pension payable to a Member contemplated in section 103.1 or, as the case may be, to his surviving spouse and to his children is inalienable and unseizable.
