DIVISION I
GENERAL PROVISIONS
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
1. This pension plan, which replaces the plan that applied from 1 July 1965, applies to a teacher who is a person appointed or employed before 1 July 1973 if he holds a pedagogical or educational position, within the meaning of the regulations, in a teaching institution contemplated in Schedule I.
Every person who had a right to contribute during the school year 1964-65 to the plan provided in Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235) is a teacher as long as he continues to hold the employment from which that right is derived.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 1 (part); 1966-67, c. 64, s. 1; 1970, c. 56, s. 1; 1972, c. 60, s. 48; 1973, c. 12, s. 186; 1974, c. 63, s. 1; 1977, c. 23, s. 1; 1977, c. 5, s. 14; 1982, c. 51, s. 49; 1983, c. 24, s. 2.
2. The plan also applies, on conditions determined by regulation, to a teacher whose services are required by a teachers’ association or an agency in the field of education contemplated in Schedule II.
1973, c. 12, s. 187; 1977, c. 23, s. 2; 1983, c. 24, s. 2.
2.1. For the purposes of this plan, a teacher within the meaning of this plan is deemed to hold pensionable employment when he holds full-time or part-time employment contemplated by this plan, which includes, among other periods, any period during which he is absent without pay, is entitled to salary-insurance benefits or, in the case of a female teacher, is on maternity leave.
For the purposes of this plan, salary insurance means the salary insurance that is mandatory for the teacher, but does not include the salary insurance referred to in section 29.1. When such a teacher holds employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days, the teacher is also deemed to hold pensionable employment until the end of the contract of employment if the contract ends on 30 June of any year.
The Government shall identify by regulation the classes of teachers who hold pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days.
1987, c. 47, s. 86; 1988, c. 82, s. 58; 1995, c. 70, s. 44; 2002, c. 30, s. 75; 2008, c. 25, s. 53.
2.1.1. For the purposes of this plan, an absence without pay is an absence that is provided for in the teacher’s conditions of employment and authorized by the teacher’s employer, for which the teacher does not receive pay, and during which the teacher would have been expected to perform or could have performed work had it not been for the absence.
The Government may, by regulation, determine any other absence that constitutes an absence without pay and for which, if applicable, the absent person is considered a teacher.
2018, c. 42018, c. 4, s. 31.
2.2. For the purposes of the plan, a teacher shall participate in a plan from his first day of service in pensionable employment.
A teacher shall participate in a plan as long as he remains a teacher within the meaning of the plan. However, for the purposes of eligibility for and computation of benefits under this plan, where a teacher ceases to be a teacher within the meaning of this plan for any period during which he is not in service in pensionable employment and is not entitled to a pension by reason of permanent and total disability under subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 32 or to a benefit for mental or physical disability paid under a plan established by section 75.1, the teacher is deemed to have ceased to participate,
(1)  if he is not entitled to a pension, on his last day of service in pensionable employment or, as the case may be, on the date Retraite Québec received an application for redemption whereby years and parts of a year of service have been credited or transferred to the plan if such date is subsequent to the last day referred to above;
(2)  if he is entitled to a pension, on the first day he became entitled to the pension, from the day or date which would have been considered if paragraph 1 had applied.
1988, c. 82, s. 59; 2000, c. 32, s. 50; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
3. This plan does not apply to a teacher who
(1)  is a Member of the National Assembly;
(2)  is excluded from the plan by reason of his class or conditions of employment, or his remuneration or mode of remuneration as determined by regulation;
(3)  is a member of the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services;
(4)  belongs to a class of employees designated under the first paragraph of section 23 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1), except where he makes the election provided for in the third paragraph of that section.

If he is not entitled to such re-assignment, he may, if he applies therefor to Retraite Québec within one year following the date on which he became such a staff member, be a member of this plan from the date specified in his application, which may precede by not more than 12 months the date on which Retraite Québec receives the application but may not be prior to the date on which he became such a staff member.

10. Retraite Québec is responsible for the administration of the Teachers Pension Plan.
No person may claim to have a benefit, advantage or reimbursement provided for by the plan if he has not applied therefor to Retraite Québec.
Even in the absence of an application for payment, any benefit payable under this plan shall be paid on or before 31 December of the year in which the teacher attains 69 years of age or, where he continues to hold pensionable employment under the plan on that date, from the date on which he retires.
1973, c. 11, s. 11; 1973, c. 12, s. 190; 1977, c. 23, s. 9; 1982, c. 51, s. 57; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1997, c. 50, s. 61; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
10.1. Where an application for redemption of years or parts of a year is made to Retraite Québec under this plan, Retraite Québec shall send to the teacher a redemption proposal valid for a period of 60 days from the date it is made.
The application for redemption is deemed never to have been made if Retraite Québec does not receive from the teacher before the 60-day period expires a notice to the effect that he accepts the proposal.
In addition, the application is deemed never to have been made if the lump sum payment of the cost of redemption is not made before the 60-day period expires, where such a payment is exigible owing to the choice made by the teacher or by operation of law. Where payment is exigible by instalments and the teacher fails to make a payment, the application for redemption is deemed never to have been made in respect of service for which the payments have not been made if the teacher does not make the payment which has become overdue within 30 days after the date of a notice from Retraite Québec to that effect. In that case, the most recent service is credited first.
No interest is computed for the period during which the redemption proposal provided for in the first paragraph is valid. Where Retraite Québec refuses the redemption of years or parts of years and a contrary decision is made following a review or arbitration based on the data contained in the record at the time of the refusal, no interest is computed in respect of such years or parts of years between the date of the refusal and the date on which the redemption proposal expires.
1990, c. 87, s. 81; 1991, c. 77, s. 66; 1992, c. 67, s. 57; 1993, c. 74, s. 16; 1994, c. 20, s. 24; 1997, c. 43, s. 633; 2002, c. 30, s. 76; 2007, c. 43, s. 94; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
10.1.1. Notwithstanding section 10.1, a teacher who makes an application for review in the period during which the redemption proposal is valid is not bound to accept it during that period, or to make payments, until a final decision has been made on his application. After the decision of the pension committee or the arbitrator has been sent, Retraite Québec shall send a notice to the teacher which, as of the date of the redemption proposal, repeats or modifies that proposal, and section 10.1 applies.
Any unpaid amount in respect of the redemption proposal bears interest, compounded annually and payable according to the same terms and conditions as the redemption, from the date of that proposal until the date of the Retraite Québec’s notice. The rate is that provided for in Schedule VII to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and in force on the date the application for redemption is received, unless interest is otherwise payable for that period by operation of law.
1993, c. 74, s. 17; 1997, c. 43, s. 851; 2004, c. 39, s. 181; 2006, c. 49, s. 126; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
10.2. Despite any inconsistent provision of this Act, no benefit resulting from the redemption under this plan of years or parts of years prior to 1 January 1990 may exceed the defined benefit limit applicable in respect of such years or parts of years under the Income Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 5th Supplement).
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the Government may, by regulation, establish the limit applicable to the pensionable salary for the purpose of establishing the cost of redemption, the limit applicable to the service that may be credited, the rules and procedures for computing that part of the pension that relates to the years and parts of years redeemed, as well as the conditions governing the application of those limits, rules and procedures.
1992, c. 67, s. 58; 2004, c. 39, s. 182.
10.3. The periods of absence of a teacher occurring after 31 December 1991 which may be credited under this plan are, for each type of absence and in total, determined by regulation.
1992, c. 67, s. 58.
CHAPTER II
DETERMINATION OF THE PENSIONABLE SALARY AND YEARS OF SERVICE
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
DIVISION I
PENSIONABLE SALARY
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
11. The pensionable salary of a teacher is the basic salary paid to him during a calendar year, the salary to which he would have been entitled during a period of absence to which salary insurance applies and, in the case of a female teacher, the salary to which she would have been entitled if she had not taken maternity leave.
In the case of a paternity or adoption leave, the pensionable salary is the basic salary the teacher would have been entitled to receive for the period during which the teacher receives benefits, or would receive benefits if the teacher had applied for them, under the Québec parental insurance plan established under the Act respecting parental insurance (chapter A-29.011) or the employment insurance plan established under the Employment Insurance Act (S.C. 1996, c. 23).
Unless included by government regulation, bonuses, allowances, compensations or other additional remuneration shall not be included in the basic salary.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 4; 1966-67, c. 64, s. 3; 1970, c. 56, s. 4; 1973, c. 12, s. 191; 1974, c. 63, s. 4; 1977, c. 23, s. 10; 1982, c. 51, s. 58; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 62; 1991, c. 77, s. 67; 2006, c. 55, s. 37; 2010, c. 29, s. 29.
12. (Repealed).
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 5; 1966-67, c. 64, s. 4; 1970, c. 56, s. 5; 1973, c. 12, s. 192; 1977, c. 23, s. 11; 1979, c. 42, s. 8; 1980, c. 18, s. 12; 1982, c. 51, s. 59; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1985, c. 18, s. 31; 1988, c. 82, s. 63.
13. Notwithstanding section 11, every lump sum paid as an increase or adjustment of the pensionable salary for a previous year is part of the pensionable salary for the year in which it is paid.
However, where the lump sum is paid in a year during which no service is credited, it shall be included in the pensionable salary of the last year during which service is credited to him prior to payment of the lump sum.
A lump sum paid to a pensioner is included in the pensionable salary only if it is paid as an increase or adjustment of the salary for a prior period of participation in the plan.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 6; 1970, c. 56, s. 6; 1973, c. 12, s. 193; 1974, c. 63, s. 5; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 91; 1987, c. 107, s. 212; 1988, c. 82, s. 64; 1990, c. 32, s. 27; 2007, c. 43, s. 95.
13.1. The pensionable salary of a teacher who is released with pay for union activities is the salary paid to him by his employer and the salary, if any, paid to him by a body designated in Schedule II.1 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
The first paragraph applies from the date on which the designation of the body in Schedule II.1 takes effect and the body begins to pay contributory amounts as an employer and deducts the contributions from the pensionable salary it pays to such a teacher.
1986, c. 44, s. 91; 1987, c. 47, s. 92; 1995, c. 46, s. 23.
14. The pensionable salary of a teacher in any calendar year shall not be less than the basic salary to which he is entitled in that year, determined in accordance with the conditions of employment applicable to him and taking into account the third paragraph of section 11, with the exception of any lump sum paid subsequently as an increase or adjustment of the pensionable salary for that year.
1973, c. 12, s. 193; 1977, c. 23, s. 12; 1982, c. 51, s. 60; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 65; 2007, c. 43, s. 96.
14.1. The pensionable salary of a teacher for the years of service credited after the redemption of a period of absence without pay pursuant to section 21 or 21.0.1 is the salary that the teacher would have received if he or she had not been absent.
The Government shall determine by regulation the circumstances in which another salary may be established. The Government shall also determine the terms and conditions relating to the application of such salary.
2002, c. 30, s. 77.
15. The pensionable salary of a teacher who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment in a year is the aggregate of the salary paid to him for all such employments if the total service credited to him in respect of such employments is equal to one year or less.
If the total service credited in respect of the pensionable employments of the teacher is reduced by the application of section 17, the pensionable salary of the teacher shall not exceed the total of the following amounts:
(1)  the salary attached to the employment held for a proportionately greater number of days in the year or, if such employments were held for proportionately the same number of days, the salary attached to the highest paid employment; and
(2)  the amount by which the teacher’s pensionable salary attached to the employment to which subparagraph 1 applies exceeds the annual basic salary paid to him in respect of that employment or that would have been paid to him pursuant to the conditions of employment applicable on the last credited day of the year, multiplied by the service credited to that teacher in the course of the year in respect of that employment.
For the purposes of subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph, the salary attached to an employment is the salary defined in section 11, computed on a yearly basis and multiplied by the total service credited.
For the purposes of the third paragraph of section 35.1.2, the teacher is deemed to have held only one employment during the year and his annual basic salary shall be the salary attached to the employment to which subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph applies.
1977, c. 23, s. 13; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 93; 1988, c. 82, s. 66; 1991, c. 77, s. 68; 1995, c. 46, s. 24; 2008, c. 25, s. 54.
15.1. Notwithstanding sections 11 to 15, the pensionable salary of a teacher for one year of service shall not exceed the salary required to arrive at the defined benefit limit applicable for each year under the Income Tax Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. 1 (5th Suppl.)). In the case of a year of service over and above 35 years of service that is used to compute the pension, the salary required to arrive at the defined benefit limit is established as if that year were counted for the purposes of section 38.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the pensionable salary of a teacher who, for his service in a calendar year, is credited with less than one year of service is equal, subject to the fourth paragraph, to the amount obtained by carrying out, in order, the following operations:
(1)  dividing the salary referred to in sections 11 to 15, reduced by the amount established in accordance with the third paragraph of section 35.1.2, by the service credited; and
(2)  adding to the result of that operation the amount established in accordance with the third paragraph of section 35.1.2.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, the pensionable salary referred to in the third paragraph of section 35.1.2 does not take account of the limit provided for in the first paragraph.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, the pensionable salary must not exceed the amount obtained by multiplying the limit referred to in the first paragraph by the service credited to the teacher during the year.
1991, c. 77, s. 69; 1992, c. 67, s. 59; 2004, c. 39, s. 183; 2008, c. 25, s. 55; 2011, c. 24, s. 21.
15.2. For the purposes of this Act, pensionable salary refers to the pensionable salary determined under this division. However, section 15.1 is excluded from this reference in respect of the years prior to 1 January 1992.
2004, c. 39, s. 184.
DIVISION II
YEARS OF SERVICE
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
§ 1.  — General provisions
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
16. One year of service or part of a year of service is credited to the teacher, for each calendar year, for the service accomplished if the contributions have been paid and not reimbursed, and for the service that is otherwise credited to him under the provisions of the plan. The same applies to a teacher who has at least 40 years of credited service, without his having to pay contributions.
Service is credited according to the number of days and parts of days for which the teacher contributed and was exempt and the days and parts of days otherwise credited to him out of the number of pensionable days in a year, that is 200 or 260, according to the basis of remuneration. The days and parts of a day are rounded to the fourth decimal.
1977, c. 23, s. 13; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1991, c. 77, s. 70; 1997, c. 50, s. 62; 2007, c. 43, s. 97; 2011, c. 24, s. 22; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 23.
17. If a teacher simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment, the service he accomplishes is credited up to one year of service.
However, no teacher may, in the year of his retirement or in the year in which he becomes entitled to a deferred pension, be credited with more service than the number of contributory days comprised between 1 January and the date he ceased to participate in the plan.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 7; 1973, c. 12, s. 194; 1977, c. 23, s. 14; 1982, c. 51, s. 61; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 94; 1988, c. 82, s. 67.
18. The days and parts of a day of a period during which a teacher receives salary insurance benefits, or during which he would receive such benefits were it not for the waiting period prescribed by the salary insurance plan or were he not receiving a disability benefit under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R‐9) or an income replacement indemnity under the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases (chapter A‐3.001), the Automobile Insurance Act (chapter A‐25), the Act to promote good citizenship (chapter C‐20), the Crime Victims Compensation Act (chapter I‐6) or under any other Act, other than an Act of Québec, having the same effect, shall be credited, without contributions, up to three years of service.
However, the limit of three years of service prescribed in the first paragraph shall not apply in the case of a compulsory salary insurance plan in force on 31 December 1989 which, on that date, provides, in favour of certain groups of teachers covered by this plan, benefits payable up to the age of 65 years or up to the age of retirement providing the teacher belongs to one of those groups and the group’s participation in the salary insurance plan is maintained.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the salary insurance plan so provides, the insurer shall pay the contributions which would have been paid by the teacher, and they shall be credited to the account of the teacher.
The days and parts of a day during which a female teacher receives the income replacement indemnity provided for in section 36 of the Act respecting occupational health and safety (chapter S‐2.1) by reason of the exercise of a right granted under sections 40, 41 and 46 of the said Act, are credited with exemption from contributions.
1973, c. 12, s. 195; 1977, c. 23, s. 15; 1982, c. 51, s. 62; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 95; 1989, c. 76, s. 5; 1992, c. 16, s. 11; 2000, c. 32, s. 51.
18.1. A person referred to in the first paragraph of section 18 who, under the salary insurance plan provided for in the person’s conditions of employment, is entitled only to salary insurance benefits for a maximum period of two years of service, shall continue to participate in the plan, even if the person’s employer has terminated the person’s employment, during the year following the last day of that two-year period, if on that day the person is disabled within the meaning of the person’s salary insurance plan and if during that year the person does not hold pensionable employment under the plan.
During that year, the service credited to that person, without contributions, is the service that would have been credited if the person had held employment and the person’s pensionable salary is the salary the person would have received.
However, the service credited to a person who dies, resigns or retires during the year following the two-year period provided for in the first paragraph shall be reduced by the period between the date of the event and the end of that year. The service credited under this section to a person who again holds pensionable employment during that period shall be reduced by the period between the person’s first day of service in pensionable employment and the end of that year.
2000, c. 32, s. 52.
19. The days and parts of a day of a maternity leave commencing after 31 December 1988 shall be credited to the teacher, without contributions, up to 135 contributory days.
If the teacher holds more than one pensionable employment in a year, the days and parts of a day of such a leave shall be credited to her before any other service.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 8; 1970, c. 56, s. 7; 1977, c. 23, s. 16; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 96; 1988, c. 82, s. 68; 2006, c. 55, s. 38.
20. The days and parts of days of absence which are totally compensated for out of accumulated sick leave are credited to the teacher only if the contributions are paid. This rule applies even in the cases provided for in sections 18, 19 and 76.2. Such days and parts of days are also credited to a teacher who has at least 40 years of credited service, without his having to pay contributions.
1977, c. 23, s. 17; 1982, c. 51, s. 63; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 69; 1991, c. 77, s. 71; 2011, c. 24, s. 23; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 24.
21. A teacher who has had a period of absence without pay at a time he or she held pensionable employment may, if the teacher applies therefor, be credited in whole or in part with the period of absence if it consisted of more than 30 consecutive days or, in the case of part-time absence, of more than 20% of the regular time of a full-time teacher holding similar employment.
To redeem a period of absence, a teacher must be contributing to the plan on the date the application is received by Retraite Québec which must be subsequent to the date of the end of the period of absence except if pursuant to section 18 or 19 the teacher does not pay contributions. However, such a period may also be redeemed if, at the end of the period, the teacher is no longer contributing to the plan by reason of eligibility for a pension or death, by reason of a transfer agreement entered into under section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or, where the teacher contributed after the period of absence, if the teacher’s application for redemption and pension application are received simultaneously by Retraite Québec.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, a teacher who, at the end of the period of absence without pay, is contributing to the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or the Pension Plan of Management Personnel even, in the latter two cases, if the teacher holds pensionable employment under the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers, may also redeem a period of absence prior to his or her participation in any such plan if the application was received while the teacher was participating in this plan.
A teacher who ceases to participate in the plan after a period of absence without pay of 30 consecutive days or less for which only part of the amount to be withheld pursuant to section 29.0.1 has been withheld may also be credited with that part of the period of absence for which no amount has been so withheld.
With respect to the person referred to in section 8.8 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services (chapter R-9.2), the eligibility for a pension provided for in the second paragraph refers to the pension accrued under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 9; 1977, c. 23, s. 18; 1982, c. 51, s. 64; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1985, c. 18, s. 32; 1986, c. 44, s. 92; 1987, c. 107, s. 213; 1988, c. 82, s. 70; 1990, c. 87, s. 105; 1992, c. 67, s. 60; 1997, c. 50, s. 63; 2001, c. 31, s. 369; 2002, c. 30, s. 78; 2004, c. 39, s. 185; 2007, c. 43, s. 98; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
21.0.1. A teacher who has had a period of absence without pay at a time he or she held pensionable employment may, if the teacher applies therefor, be credited with all or part of the period of absence if it began on 1 July 1965 or after that date and ended before 1 July 1973, where that period was for the purpose of allowing the teacher to pursue specialized studies, or if that period began on 16 July 1970 or after that date but before 1 January 2002.
Section 21, except the first paragraph, applies for the purposes of this section.
2002, c. 30, s. 79.
21.1. An officer who ceases to be a member of the Civil Service Superannuation Plan and becomes a member of this plan may be credited under this plan with all years or parts of years that could have been credited under section 66.1 of the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan (chapter R-12) provided he satisfies the conditions prescribed therein.
1992, c. 67, s. 61.
22. The amount required of a teacher for payment of the cost of redemption under section 21 or 21.0.1 is equal to 100% of the contributions that would have been withheld from the pensionable salary the teacher would have received if the teacher had not been absent during the period covered by the application according to the number of days and parts of a day to be redeemed out of the number of pensionable days, calculated on the basis of the applicable annual remuneration.
However, where the application for redemption of a period of absence without pay is received by Retraite Québec more than six months after the end of the period of absence without pay, the amount required of a teacher to pay the redemption cost is determined on the basis of the pensionable salary at the time of receipt of the teacher’s application, according to the number of days or parts of a day to be redeemed out of the number of pensionable days, calculated on the basis of the annual remuneration. Such cost is determined in accordance with the rate established by a regulation made under section 25 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10). The regulation may also provide for a special rate applicable to employees who are members of this plan.
To pay the redemption cost, a teacher may spread the payment over the period and payment dates determined by Retraite Québec. In that case, the second paragraph of section 26 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan applies. The teacher may also, if provided for in his conditions of employment, use all or part of his accumulated sick leave. In the latter case, his employer shall pay all or part of the amount according to the terms determined by Retraite Québec.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, the limit provided for in section 15.1 is not applicable to the pensionable salary used to establish the cost of redeeming a period of absence in progress before 1 January 1992.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 10; 1966-67, c. 64, s. 5; 1970, c. 56, s. 8; 1973, c. 12, s. 196; 1982, c. 51, s. 65; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1985, c. 18, s. 33; 1986, c. 44, s. 93; 2002, c. 30, s. 80; 2004, c. 39, s. 186; 2015, c. 20, s. 61; 2016, c. 14, s. 25.
23. The years and parts of a year of teaching that have been recognized for purposes of seniority under a collective agreement applicable between 1979 and 1985, by reason of a dismissal or forced resignation because of marriage or maternity, to a female teacher who is a member of the teaching staff or the professional staff of a school board, may be credited.
To have such years and parts of a year credited, the teacher shall pay an amount equal to the contributions reimbursed to her with interest, compounded annually, at the rate of 5% for the period included between the date of the reimbursement and 30 June 1973 and with interest, compounded annually, at the rate determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), for the period included between 1 July 1973 and the date of receipt of the application.
The amount determined under the second paragraph is payable in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by Retraite Québec or, if provided for in the teacher’s conditions of employment, by using all or part of her accumulated sick leave. In the latter case, her employer shall pay all or part of the amount according to the terms determined by Retraite Québec. If it is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VII to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and in force on the date on which the application is received, computed from the date on which the redemption proposal made by Retraite Québec expires.
1970, c. 56, s. 9; 1973, c. 12, s. 197; 1974, c. 63, s. 6; 1977, c. 23, s. 19; 1982, c. 51, s. 66; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1985, c. 18, s. 34; 1990, c. 87, s. 82; 2002, c. 30, s. 81; 2004, c. 39, s. 187; 2006, c. 55, s. 39; 2015, c. 20, s. 61; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 26.
23.1. Section 23 applies to a female teacher of a school board who is a member of the supervisory personnel if she was dismissed or forced to resign by reason of marriage or maternity pursuant to a by-law or written policy of the school board where the teacher holds a position contemplated in this plan.
1985, c. 18, s. 34.
§ 2.  — Special provisions
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
24. Every teacher may have years and parts of a year of service credited to him under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan if his contributions have not been reimbursed to him and if he is not a pensioner under that plan.
Notwithstanding the fact that no application to that effect has been made by the teacher, the years and parts of a year of service shall be credited to him upon computation of any pension unless he gives written notice to the contrary before the pension is paid. However, where an application is made for the statement referred to in section 72.1 or 72.1.1, Retraite Québec shall assess the benefits accumulated under this plan and, where applicable, shall pay the sums awarded to the spouse taking into account such years and parts of a year of service.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 11; 1970, c. 56, s. 10; 1977, c. 23, s. 20; 1982, c. 51, s. 67; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1990, c. 32, s. 28; 2015, c. 20, s. 61; 2018, c. 42018, c. 4, s. 33.
25. Every teacher is entitled to be credited for pension purposes with the years and parts of a year during which he contributed to a pension plan which applied before 1 January 1992 to a Member of the National Assembly and in respect of which he obtained a refund of his contributions, except if he has already exercised a right of redemption in respect of such years and parts of a year under a pension plan other than this plan.
The teacher shall pay to Retraite Québec, for each of such years and parts of a year, an amount equal to the amount obtained by applying the rate of contribution applicable under the plan at the time the plan becomes applicable to him to the indemnity he received as a Member or to the pensionable salary he receives or would have been entitled to receive in the school year at the time the plan becomes applicable to him, whichever is less.
A teacher who ceased to be a Member before 1 January 1958 may apply to have his years as a Member credited by paying an amount equal to 5% of the indemnity he received during each of such years.
The pension is based solely on the salary that he receives while participating in this plan.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 12; 1970, c. 56, s. 11; 1982, c. 51, s. 68; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 71; 1992, c. 16, s. 12; 1993, c. 41, s. 32; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
26. A teacher may pay the amount required for the redemption of years during which he was a Member in a lump sum or, if provided for in the teacher’s conditions of employment, by using all or part of his accumulated sick leave. In the latter case, his employer shall pay all or part of the amount according to the terms determined by Retraite Québec.
However, where he redeems two years of service or more, he may pay by instalments; in that case, the amount to be paid by him shall bear interest from the date on which the redemption proposal made by Retraite Québec expires, at the rate of 5%, compounded annually, and may be apportioned in equal and consecutive annual instalments over a period not exceeding five years.
1966-67, c. 64, s. 6; 1970, c. 56, s. 12; 1974, c. 63, s. 7; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1990, c. 87, s. 83; 2015, c. 20, s. 61; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 27.
27. A teacher who teaches for a period of five years or less under an authority with which no agreement respecting this plan has been made under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) may, if he applies therefor before the end of the teaching period, be credited with all or part of the years of teaching included in that period, provided
(1)  he pays, over the period and at the payment dates determined by Retraite Québec, double the contributions provided for in the plan;
(2)  he holds pensionable employment under this plan from the end of the period, unless he has died or become disabled or eligible for retirement, or unless, upon his return, he avails himself of any agreement of transferability respecting this plan entered into under section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 13; 1966-67, c. 64, s. 7; 1970, c. 56, s. 13; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 107, s. 214; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.

27.3. (Repealed).
1987, c. 107, s. 215; 2004, c. 39, s. 188.
28. Every teacher has a right to be credited with the years of service, except those for which his contributions have been reimbursed to him, that he had a right, on 1 July 1965, to be credited with for pension purposes under Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235), on the conditions prescribed therein.
The duration of service, the remuneration and the amount of the deductions in respect of the years of service are determined in accordance with Part VIII of the Education Act.

DIVISION III
REDEMPTION OF SERVICE BY A PENSIONER
2007, c. 43, s. 99.
28.0.1. A pensioner for whom the number of years and parts of a year of service used for computing the pension was reduced and who, on the date the pensioner ceased to participate in this plan, was entitled or would have been entitled to be credited with years and parts of a year of service under the provisions of the plan may, if the pensioner applies to redeem that service within 180 days of the date of the decision sent by Retraite Québec notifying the pensioner of the reduction, take advantage of those provisions to be credited with years and parts of a year of service, up to the number by which the pensioner’s service was reduced.
The amount the pensioner must pay to cover the cost of redemption is established on the date of retirement and the provisions apply, adapted as follows:
(1)  the “date of receipt of the application”, and any reference to that date, means the date of retirement;
(2)  when the cost of redemption is established on the basis of the annual pensionable salary on the date of receipt of the application for redemption, the annual pensionable salary is equal to
(a)  the salary that was or would have been paid under the conditions of employment that were or would have been applicable if the pensioner held or had continued to hold, until the date of retirement, the employment the pensioner held on the last day of credited service before retiring; or,
(b)  if the employment held with the employer no longer exists on the date of retirement, the salary the pensioner received on the last day of credited service, increased by the percentage of increase applicable to the salary scales that apply to the same class of employment with an employer whose conditions of employment are governed by the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2) between the last day of credited service and the date of retirement; and
(3)  when the amount required to cover the cost of redemption bears interest, no interest is computed after the date of retirement.
The amount required to cover the cost of redemption is payable in a lump sum.
2007, c. 43, s. 99; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
CHAPTER II.1
SPECIAL PROVISIONS
1987, c. 47, s. 97.
DIVISION I
MATERNITY LEAVE
1987, c. 47, s. 97.
28.1. Every female teacher who was granted a maternity leave while she was a member of the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235) or while she was a teacher within the meaning of this Plan may be credited, without contributions and up to 90 contributory days, with the days of a maternity leave which was in progress on 1 July 1965 or which began after that date but ended before 1 July 1976, provided the 90-day period allows the teacher to complete 95% or more of the school year in which she was granted the maternity leave.
Every female teacher who was granted a maternity leave may be credited, without contributions and up to 120 contributory days, with the days of the maternity leave which was in progress on 1 July 1976 or which began after that date but ended before 1 July 1983.
To be credited with the days of the maternity leave, the teacher referred to in the first or second paragraph is required to have contributed to the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act, to the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or to this plan, as the case may be, during the 12 months preceding the beginning of the maternity leave and to have contributed again to this plan or to the Civil Service Superannuation Plan during the two years following the year in which the maternity leave ended even if, in the latter case, the teacher referred to in the first paragraph was not a teacher within the meaning of this plan at the time she again contributed.
Any contributions paid by the teacher to redeem the maternity leave pursuant to the provisions relating to the redemption of a period of absence without pay, are reimbursed without interest. However, if the redeemed period, in respect of a maternity leave which ended before 1 July 1976 exceeds 100 days, the maternity leave cannot be credited without contributions and the contributions paid by the teacher cannot be reimbursed. If the redeemed period, in respect of a maternity leave which was in progress on 1 July 1976, or which began after that date, exceeds the period credited pursuant to this section, the balance of the redeemed period remains credited to the account of the teacher even if it is less than 30 days.
1987, c. 47, s. 97; 1990, c. 87, s. 85; 1991, c. 14, s. 32; 2002, c. 30, s. 90.
28.2. That part of the pension attributable to service credited pursuant to section 28.1, if the service is credited for a year credited to the teacher pursuant to section 28.3, only to the extent that the service is necessary to make up the maximum of 40 years of service, is increased annually, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), by the excess of the rate of increase in the Pension Index determined under that Act over 3%. Section 64 applies to the increase. In all other cases, sections 63 and 64 apply.
1987, c. 47, s. 97; 2011, c. 24, s. 24; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 28.
DIVISION II
YEARS REIMBURSED BY REASON OF MARRIAGE, PREGNANCY OR ADOPTION
1987, c. 47, s. 97.
28.3. Any teacher who while she was a member of the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235) or while she was a teacher within the meaning of this plan ceased to participate in her pension plan by reason of marriage, pregnancy or adoption if, in the last case, the adoption was subsequently recognized for legal purposes by a judgment, may be credited with all or part of her years of teaching prior to 1 January 1968 for which she obtained a reimbursement of contributions, if the marriage, pregnancy or adoption occurred in the 12 months preceding or in the 24 months following the date on which she ceased to participate in her pension plan.
To be credited with such years and parts of a year, the teacher must pay the sum of $1,000 per year.
The amount required for such years and parts of a year to be credited is payable either in a lump sum or by instalments spread over the period and payable at the times determined by Retraite Québec or, if provided for in the teacher’s conditions of employment, by using all or part of her accumulated sick leave. In the latter case, her employer shall pay all or part of the amount according to the terms determined by Retraite Québec. If it is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate provided for in Schedule VII to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and in force on the date on which the application is received, computed from the date on which the redemption proposal made by Retraite Québec expires.
1987, c. 47, s. 97; 1987, c. 107, s. 216; 1988, c. 82, s. 72; 1990, c. 87, s. 86; 2002, c. 30, s. 83; 2015, c. 20, s. 61; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 29.
28.4. The sum of $1,000 contemplated in the second paragraph of section 28.3 shall be adjusted, on 31 December of each year, at the interest rate determined in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and in force on that date.
1987, c. 47, s. 97; 2004, c. 39, s. 189.
28.5. The part of the pension attributable to service credited pursuant to section 28.3, only to the extent that the service is necessary to make up the maximum of 40 years of service, is increased annually, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), by the excess of the rate of increase in the Pension Index determined under that Act over 3%. Section 64 applies to the increase.
1987, c. 47, s. 97; 2011, c. 24, s. 25; 2016, c. 142016, c. 14, s. 30.
DIVISION II.1
PROGRESSIVE RETIREMENT
1990, c. 32, s. 29.
28.5.1. This division applies to every teacher, except a casual teacher, who has not already availed himself of it and who, within the scope of an agreement with his employer, agrees to a reduction of his working time for a period of one to five years, providing he retires at the end of that period. However, his working time may not be less than 40% of the regular service of a full-time teacher in such employment.
Before he may avail himself of this division, the teacher shall ascertain from Retraite Québec that he is likely to be eligible for a pension on the date proposed for the end of the agreement. For this purpose, Retraite Québec shall estimate the years or parts of a year of service credited to the teacher at the end of the agreement. Any change to the date fixed for the beginning or the end of the agreement must be accepted by Retraite Québec before being made.
However, if at the end of the agreement the number of years or parts of a year of service credited to the teacher is less than the number estimated by Retraite Québec, or if at the end of the agreement the teacher is not eligible for his pension, or if the agreement is suspended due to circumstances determined by regulation, the agreement is extended, even where this causes the period to exceed five years, until the date on which the number of years or parts of a year of service credited to the teacher is equal to the estimate made by Retraite Québec in the first case and, in the other cases, until the date on which the teacher becomes eligible for his pension.
1990, c. 32, s. 29; 1991, c. 77, s. 72; 1995, c. 70, s. 45; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
28.5.2. The employer shall make a deduction from the pensionable salary paid to the teacher equal to the deduction he would have made if the teacher had not availed himself of this division.
If the teacher is eligible for salary insurance benefits, the exemption from contributions provided for in section 18 is the exemption to which he would have been entitled if he had not availed himself of this division.
1990, c. 32, s. 29; 2004, c. 39, s. 190.
28.5.3. For the purposes of this plan and Title IV of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), the pensionable salary for the years or parts of a year covered by the agreement is the salary the teacher would have received or, for a period in respect of which salary insurance benefits apply, the salary which he would have been entitled to receive if he had not availed himself of this division. However, for the purposes of a pension, for years subsequent to 2009, the annualized pensionable salary for the years covered by the agreement is the salary that would have been determined for the teacher if the teacher had not availed himself of this division. The service credited is the service that would have been credited to the teacher if he had not availed himself of this division.
1990, c. 32, s. 29; 2008, c. 25, s. 56.
28.5.4. If the agreement becomes null or terminates due to circumstances which, in each case, are determined by regulation, the pensionable salary, the annualized pensionable salary, the service credited and the contributions are determined, for each circumstance, in the manner prescribed by regulation.
The regulation may prescribe the terms and conditions on which a teacher may be credited with service not recognized by reason of any such circumstance.
1990, c. 32, s. 29; 2008, c. 25, s. 57.
28.5.5. The regulations under this division may have effect 12 months or less before they are adopted.

The categories of employees and the rules, terms and conditions applicable to have years or parts of a year of past service as a paid trainee counted, the years or parts of a year of service which may be counted and their number, which may vary according to the category of employees, shall be determined by regulation made under subparagraph 11.3 of the first paragraph of section 134 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).

2000, c. 32, s. 53; 2007, c. 43, s. 101.
28.5.11. Sections 73.1 to 73.7 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) shall apply, with the necessary modifications, to a teacher who has acquired pension credit under this division. Any reference to a provision of that Act is a reference to the corresponding provision of this Act.
2000, c. 32, s. 53.

For the purposes of this division, the teacher referred to in the first paragraph is deemed to retire on the date he or she retires under the Pension Plan of Management Personnel and the teacher’s application for a pension filed under that plan is deemed to be an application for the payment of pension credit.
Sections 28.5.11, 61, 67, 68 and 72.1 to 72.7 do not apply to the teacher. Sections 59.2 to 59.5 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan apply, with the necessary modifications.

2008, c. 25, s. 61.
1.  — Annualized pensionable salary
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.1. For the purposes of section 33.3, the annualization of salaries for the years of service prior to 2010 are obtained,
(1)  when computing the average pensionable salary referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 33.2, by dividing the pensionable salary for such a year by the service credited, except service credited under section 62; and
(2)  when computing the average pensionable salary referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 33.2, by dividing the pensionable salary for such a year by the service credited, except service credited under section 62. The limit imposed by the first paragraph of section 15.1 applies to the result obtained for each year.
The pensionable salary for each year, referred to in subparagraphs 1 and 2 of the first paragraph, is the pensionable salary established under sections 11 to 15.
However, if a lump sum included in the pensionable salary established under the second paragraph is paid in 2007 or a subsequent year as an increase in or adjustment to the salary for a previous year, it must be subtracted from the pensionable salary for the year during which it is paid. In addition, a lump sum attributed to a given year under section 35.1.20 must be added to the pensionable salary for that year.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, all the years and parts of a year of service credited must be counted, but service credited under sections 19, 28.1 and 76.2 may not be counted in respect of service credited before 1 January 1992.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.2. For the purposes of the first paragraph of section 35.1.1, the aggregate of any lump sum paid as an increase in or adjustment to the pensionable salary for a previous year and any amount paid during the year in which the teacher ceases to participate in the plan and pertaining to pensionable salary for the days and parts of a day credited to the teacher for the last days of the previous year is excluded from the pensionable salary established under the second and third paragraphs of section 35.1.1.
The amount referred to in the first paragraph is to be added to the results obtained under the first paragraph of section 35.1.1. However, for the purposes of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of that section, the amount is added before the application of the limit imposed by the first paragraph of section 15.1.
For the years and parts of a year of service credited after 31 December 1989, the amount referred to in the first paragraph is either the amount by which the pensionable salary of the teacher established under the second and third paragraphs of section 35.1.1 exceeds the annual basic salary paid to the teacher or that would have been paid to the teacher under the conditions of employment applicable on the last credited day of the year, multiplied by the service credited to the teacher during the year, or, if the teacher simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment under the plan during a year, the amount by which the teacher’s pensionable salary exceeds the total annual basic salary for each employment multiplied by the credited service attached to each employment.
The service credited under section 62 and, for 1990 and 1991, the service credited under section 19 must not be counted for the purposes of the third paragraph.
2008, c. 25, s. 61; 2009, c. 56, s. 11.
35.1.3. For the purposes of paragraph 2 of section 33.3, an annualized pensionable salary resulting from the application of subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 35.1.1 and selected under paragraph 1 of section 33.3 must be reduced by the amount that was added to it under section 35.1.2. That amount must then be added to the result of the multiplication referred to in paragraph 2 of section 33.3.
For the purposes of paragraph 2 of section 33.3, an annualized pensionable salary resulting from the application of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 35.1.1 and selected under paragraph 1 of section 33.3 must be reduced, if applicable, by the amount that was added under section 35.1.2 after applying the limit imposed by the first paragraph of section 15.1. That amount must then be added to the result of the multiplication referred to in paragraph 2 of section 33.3.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
2.  — Contributory periods
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.4. For the purposes of sections 33.3, 38 and the sections that refer to section 38, a contributory period is, for each year, the number of contributory days in the period during which the teacher participated in the plan in a year or in the period during which days and parts of a day were otherwise credited to the teacher with contributions, except the days and parts of a day determined by regulation, over the number of contributory days in the year concerned, that is, 200 or 260 depending on the basis of remuneration for the employment. The contributory period of a new teacher for the year during which the teacher becomes a member of the plan begins on the first day in respect of which the teacher contributed or was exempt from contributions and the last period ends on the last day credited in the year during which the teacher ceases to participate in the plan.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
3.  — Credited service derived from another plan
2008, c. 25, s. 61.

For the purpose of determining the average pensionable salary, the pensionable salary, the basic salary and the contributory periods must be determined according to the years and parts of a year of service credited to the teacher under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services and the basis of remuneration for the employment concerned for each of those years, that is, 200 or 260 days. The same rule applies for the purposes of section 38 and the sections that refer to section 38.
However, the pensionable salary and the contributory periods for the years and parts of a year of service credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis are excluded from the average pensionable salary, as are the contributory periods for any previous years and parts of a year.

III.  — Annualization of salaries and determination of contributory periods for the years of service subsequent to 2009
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
1.  — Annualized pensionable salary
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.6. For the purposes of section 33.3, the annualization of salaries for the years of service subsequent to 2009 are obtained,
(1)  when computing the average pensionable salary referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 33.2, by dividing the aggregate of the adjusted pensionable salary for such a year and the lump sum attributed to that year under section 35.1.20 by the harmonized service for the year; and
(2)  when computing the average pensionable salary referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 33.2, by dividing the aggregate of the adjusted pensionable salary for such a year and the lump sum attributed to that year under section 35.1.20 by the harmonized service for the year. The limit imposed by the first paragraph of section 15.1 applies to the result obtained for each year.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
2.  — Adjusted pensionable salary
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.7. The adjusted pensionable salary for a year, used to compute the annualized pensionable salary of a teacher who holds pensionable employment under the plan for which the basis of remuneration is 260 days, is the pensionable salary established under sections 11 to 14.1, multiplied by the daily factor applicable to that salary for the class of teachers to which the teacher belongs and divided by the number of contributory days included in the pensionable salary reference period for the year determined under section 35.1.13.
However, if a lump sum included in the pensionable salary is paid during the year as an increase in or adjustment to the pensionable salary for a previous year, it must be subtracted from the pensionable salary for the year during which it is paid.
The daily factor referred to in the first paragraph makes it possible to convert the annual basic salary into a daily salary, on the basis of the conditions of employment applicable to the teacher. The Government may, by regulation, establish the daily factor, which may vary with the class of teachers and the terms of payment of the teachers’ salary.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.8. For the purposes of this subdivision, when the pensionable salary of a teacher who holds pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 260 days and who ceases to participate in the plan at the end of a year is attached to service credited for the last days of participation during that year but is paid at the beginning of the following year, it is deemed to be pensionable salary for the year in which it is paid even if no service is credited for that year. An adjusted pensionable salary is also computed for the teacher for that year.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.9. The adjusted pensionable salary for a calendar year, used to compute the annualized pensionable salary of a teacher who holds pensionable employment under the plan for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days, is based on the school calendars for the period during which the teacher participated in the plan during the two parts of a school year in the calendar year. The school calendar is the distribution of the 200 contributory days of a school year over two calendar years, based on the conditions of employment applicable to the teacher.
The adjusted pensionable salary is determined using the following formula:

{[T × N/200] x P} − A

(1)  T is the basic salary the teacher would have been entitled to receive if the teacher had held the employment referred to in the first paragraph full time during the period referred to in that paragraph, based on the conditions of employment applicable to the teacher. The basic salary does not include the lump sum paid subsequently as an increase in or adjustment to the basic salary for that year;
(2)  N is the number of contributory days in the period referred to in the first paragraph;
(3)  P is the percentage of working time related to employment referred to in the first paragraph held during the period referred to in that paragraph; and
(4)  A, for a teacher who, while holding employment referred to in the first paragraph, was absent without pay during the period referred to in that paragraph, is the basic salary that teacher would have received in that employment during the period of absence if the period was not otherwise credited under the plan.
P is obtained by carrying out, in order, the following operations:
(1)  adding, for the period referred to in the first paragraph, the number of contributory days and parts of a day credited to the teacher in keeping with the school calendars and the number of contributory days and parts of a day during which the teacher was absent without pay while holding the employment referred to in that paragraph if the contributory days and parts of a day were not otherwise credited under the plan; and
(2)  dividing the result of the addition by N.
For the purposes of subparagraph 1 of the third paragraph, the number of contributory days and parts of a day credited to the teacher in keeping with the school calendars is the total number of days and parts of a day for which the teacher contributed or was exempt from contributions and the number of days and parts of a day otherwise credited to the teacher under the plan, for the period referred to in the first paragraph. The days and parts of a day are rounded to the fourth decimal.
The Government may, by regulation, determine the method for establishing the annual basic salary for certain teachers whose conditions of employment offer a mode of remuneration that is not established with reference to such a salary.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.10. In the case of teachers who hold pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 260 days, the pensionable salary paid by a body designated in Schedule II.1 to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) to a teacher released with pay for union activities during a year must be subtracted, for the purpose of computing the adjusted pensionable salary for the year, from the pensionable salary established under sections 11 to 14.1. The pensionable salary paid to the teacher by the body is deemed to be, for the purpose of computing the annualized pensionable salary for the year, a lump sum attributed to the year under section 35.1.20.
In the case of teachers who hold pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days, the basic salary paid by a body designated in Schedule II.1 to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan to a teacher released with pay for union activities during the period referred to in the first paragraph of section 35.1.9 is deemed to be, for the purpose of computing the annualized pensionable salary, a lump sum attributed to the year under section 35.1.20.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.11. The adjusted pensionable salary of a teacher to whom section 35.1.12 does not apply and who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment under the plan in a year is the aggregate of the adjusted pensionable salaries computed under sections 35.1.7 to 35.1.10 for each employment if the total service credited in respect of such employments is less than or equal to one year.
If the total service credited in respect of the pensionable employments held by the teacher is reduced under section 17, the adjusted pensionable salary is equal to the total of the adjusted pensionable salaries for the employments the teacher holds but may not exceed the adjusted pensionable salary attached to the employment held for a proportionately greater number of days or, if such employments were held for proportionately the same number of days, the adjusted pensionable salary attached to the employment with the highest annual basic salary. The adjusted pensionable salary for that employment is multiplied by the harmonized service attached to the employments, established under the second paragraph of section 35.1.15, over the teacher’s harmonized service in respect of the employment selected, computed under section 35.1.13 or 35.1.14.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.12. A teacher who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment under the plan with the same employer is deemed to hold only one employment for the purpose of computing the adjusted pensionable salary if the basis of remuneration for the employments is the same for a given year and the pensionable salary reference periods or school calendars relating to those employments are identical.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
3.  — Harmonized service of teachers
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.13. Harmonized service is computed for a teacher who holds pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 260 days in order to reconcile the pensionable salary for a calendar year with the number of days and parts of a day credited to the teacher for that year and for the last days of the previous year or the first days of the following year, as the case may be.
Harmonized service is established by dividing the number of days and parts of a day for which the teacher contributed or was exempt from contributions and the number of days and parts of a day otherwise credited to the teacher, included in the pensionable salary reference period for the year and related to the teacher’s pensionable salary for that year, by the number of contributory days included in that reference period for the class of teachers to which the teacher belongs. The days and parts of a day are rounded to the fourth decimal.
The pensionable salary reference period for a year, for teachers in the same class, begins on the date of the first day covered by the first pay of the year and ends on the date of the last day covered by the last pay of that year.
Harmonized service is also computed for a teacher referred to in section 35.1.8 for the pensionable salary for the year for which no service is credited.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.14. Harmonized service is computed for a teacher who holds pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days in order to reconcile the adjusted pensionable salary for the calendar year computed under sections 35.1.9 and 35.1.10 with the number of contributory days and parts of a day credited to the teacher in keeping with the school calendars included in the period during which the teacher participated in the plan during the two parts of a school year in that calendar year.
Harmonized service is established by dividing by 200 the number of contributory days and parts of a day credited to the teacher in keeping with the school calendars established in accordance with the fourth paragraph of section 35.1.9.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
4.  — Harmonized service of teachers who hold more than one pensionable employment
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.15. For the purposes of this subdivision, the harmonized service of a teacher to whom section 35.1.16 does not apply and who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment under the plan in a year is the aggregate of the harmonized service established for each employment under section 35.1.13 or 35.1.14, if the total service credited in respect of such employments is less than or equal to one year.
If the total service credited in respect of the pensionable employments held by the teacher is reduced under section 17, the harmonized service is the harmonized service that would have been computed under section 35.1.13 or 35.1.14 if the teacher had held the employment selected under the second paragraph of section 35.1.11 full time during the period in which the teacher participated in the plan.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.16. For the purposes of this subdivision, a teacher who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment under the plan with the same employer is deemed to hold only one pensionable employment for the purpose of computing harmonized service if, for a given year, the basis of remuneration for the employments is the same and the pensionable salary reference periods or school calendars relating to those employments are identical.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
5.  — Contributory periods
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.17. For the purposes of sections 33.3, 38 and the sections that refer to section 38, the contributory period of a teacher who during a year holds pensionable employment under the plan for which the basis of remuneration is 260 days is determined by dividing by 260 the number of contributory days comprised in the period during which the teacher participated in the plan or comprised in the period for which days and parts of a day were otherwise credited to the teacher with contributions for that year under the plan, except the days and parts of a day determined by regulation, during the pensionable salary reference period for the year established in accordance with section 35.1.13.
The contributory period of a teacher who during a year holds pensionable employment under the plan for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days is determined by dividing by 200 the number of contributory days under the school calendars included in the period during which the teacher participated in the plan during the two parts of a school year included in a calendar year or in the period for which days and parts of a day were otherwise credited to the teacher with contributions for that year, except the days and parts of a day determined by regulation.
The contributory period of a new teacher for the year during which the teacher becomes a member of the plan begins on the first day in respect of which the teacher contributed or was exempt from contributions and the last period ends on the last day credited in the year during which the teacher ceases to participate in the plan.
In the case of a teacher to whom section 35.1.8 applies, a contributory period that corresponds to the pensionable salary for the year for which no service is credited is also determined by dividing by 260 the number of contributory days referred to in the first paragraph that correspond to that salary.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.18. The Government may, by regulation, determine the method of establishing the contributory period of a teacher who simultaneously holds more than one pensionable employment in a year.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
6.  — Credited service derived from another plan
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.19. For the purpose of determining the average pensionable salary, when the years and parts of a year of service credited to a teacher under the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan are credited under this plan, the basic salary, the pensionable salary and the credited service established under that plan and the data related to the teacher’s participation in that plan and reported by the employer under section 188 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) for each credited year or part of a year apply to this plan in order to establish the annualized pensionable salary and the contributory periods for those years and parts of a year credited under this plan.
For the purposes of this subdivision, the sections to which it refers, and section 2.2 when that section is required for the application of this subdivision, the pensionable employment under the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan for which service was credited under this plan is deemed to be pensionable employment under this plan.
Despite the first paragraph, the annualized pensionable salary and the contributory periods for the years and parts of a year of service credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis are excluded from the computation of the average pensionable salary, as are the contributory periods for any previous years and parts of a year.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
IV.  — Miscellaneous provisions
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.1.20. A lump sum paid as an increase in or adjustment to the pensionable salary for a previous year and included in the pensionable salary established under sections 11 to 15 for the year during which the lump sum is paid must be distributed among the years for which the lump sum is paid if it is paid after 31 December 2006.
If the pensionable salary is reduced under the second paragraph of section 15, the part of the lump sum included in the pensionable salary is distributed for each year concerned in the proportion obtained by dividing the part of the lump sum referred to in section 13 and attributed to a given year by the lump sum referred to in that section.
2008, c. 25, s. 61.
35.2. (Repealed).

36. For the purposes of paragraph 1 of section 33.2, the average pensionable salary may in no case be less than $7,000.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 19; 1966-67, c. 64, s. 12; 1973, c. 12, s. 203; 1974, c. 63, s. 12; 1977, c. 23, s. 24; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1992, c. 67, s. 65; 2008, c. 25, s. 63.
37. The pension granted under subparagraph 6.1 of the first paragraph of section 32 to a female teacher who was credited with years or parts of a year of service after 31 December 1991 is reduced for its duration by the amount obtained by multiplying the amount of the pension established pursuant to subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 33.2 by 0.25% per month, computed for each month comprised between the date on which the pension is granted to the teacher and the earlier of the following dates at the time she ceased to participate in the plan:
(1)  the date of her sixtieth birthday;
(2)  the date on which her age and her years of service would have totalled 80 if she had continued to participate in the plan.
The pension granted under paragraph 7 of section 32 is reduced, for its duration, by 0.5% per month, computed for each month falling between the date on which the pension is granted to the teacher and the first date on which the pension would have been granted to him at the time he ceased to participate in the plan under paragraph 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.1° of that section.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 20; 1973, c. 12, s. 204; 1977, c. 23, s. 25; 1982, c. 66, s. 67; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1983, c. 54, s. 67; 1991, c. 77, s. 79; 1997, c. 50, s. 67; 2008, c. 25, s. 64.
38. From the month following his sixty-fifth birthday or, as the case may be, from the month following the date on which he retires, if that date is after his sixty-fifth birthday, the pension is reduced by the amount obtained by multiplying
(1)  0.7%;
(2)  the number of years of service credited after 31 December 1965, up to 35;
(3)  that part of the average pensionable salary which does not exceed the average maximum pensionable earnings, within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R‐9), in respect of the contributory periods selected for the purposes of computing the pension.
In computing the average maximum pensionable earnings, each maximum amount of pensionable earnings concerned is computed according to the ratio established for computing each contributory period.
However, where the teacher receives a pension by reason of total and permanent disability under subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 32, the reduction provided for in the first paragraph applies from the month in which the disability pension granted under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan or under an equivalent plan within the meaning of section 1 of the said Act is payable, or from the month following the date on which the teacher retires if such a disability pension is payable before the pension granted under this plan. In addition, where the teacher continues to hold pensionable employment under the plan after 30 December of the year in which he attains 69 years of age, the reduction applies from the month following that date as if he had retired.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 21; 1974, c. 63, s. 13; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1993, c. 41, s. 33; 1997, c. 50, s. 68; 2000, c. 32, s. 56.
39. The pension of a teacher who retired in 1966 or who retired by reason of physical or mental disability before 1 January 1970 is not reduced as provided in section 38.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 22; 1970, c. 56, s. 20; 1977, c. 23, s. 26; 1983, c. 24, s. 2.

§ 3.  — Payment of pension
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
41. The pension becomes payable to the teacher entitled to it from the day on which he retires.
A teacher who ceases to participate in the plan and is eligible for a pension without actuarial reduction is presumed to retire on the day after the day on which he ceases to participate in the plan. However, if the teacher continues to hold pensionable employment under the plan after 30 December of the year in which he attains 69 years of age, the day after the day on which he ceases to hold such employment is the day on which he retires.
A teacher who ceases to participate in the plan, who is eligible for an actuarially reduced pension and who applies therefor retires
(1)  on the day after the day on which he ceases to participate in the plan, if his pension application is received at Retraite Québec within 60 days after the day on which he ceases to participate in the plan;
(2)  on the date of receipt of his pension application if the date falls more than 60 days after the date on which he ceased to participate in the plan, but not after the date on which the pension would otherwise have been granted to him without actuarial reduction at the time he ceased to participate in the plan;
(3)  on any date indicated in his pension application if it is after the date of receipt of the application and the date on which he ceased to participate in the plan, but not after the date on which the pension would otherwise have been granted to him without actuarial reduction at the time he ceased to participate in the plan; or
(4)  on the first date on which a pension would otherwise have been granted to him without actuarial reduction at the time he ceased to participate in the plan if the date of receipt of the pension application is subsequent to that date.
However, where the teacher referred to in the third paragraph does not apply for a pension, he is presumed to retire on the first date on which a pension would otherwise have been granted to him without actuarial reduction at the time he ceased to participate in the plan.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 24; 1977, c. 23, s. 28; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 76; 1991, c. 77, s. 80; 1995, c. 46, s. 25; 1997, c. 50, s. 70; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
41.1. Every teacher who is entitled to a pension by reason of total and permanent disability under subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 32 ceases to be a teacher within the meaning of the plan and is deemed to retire on the day the pension was granted to him.
1988, c. 82, s. 77; 2000, c. 32, s. 57.
42. The pension is paid to the pensioner until the first day of the month following the pensioner’s death or, in the case of a person who ceased to participate in the plan and was eligible for a pension, from the date the person would have been entitled to receive the pension without actuarial reduction until the first day of the month following the person’s death.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 25; 1977, c. 23, s. 29; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 103; 2007, c. 43, s. 104.

DIVISION II
SPOUSE’S OR CHILD’S PENSION
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
44. From the day the payment of the pension of a pensioner ceases by reason of death or, as the case may be, from the day of the death of a teacher, the spouse is entitled to receive a life-pension equal to one-half of the pension that the pensioner was receiving or, as the case may be, would otherwise have been entitled to receive, or that the teacher would have been entitled to receive,
(1)  reduced as in section 38, from the month following the death, even if the pensioner or teacher dies before reaching 65 years of age;
(2)  not reduced as in section 38, if, at the time of death of the pensioner or teacher, the spouse is not entitled to any pension under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9).
The first paragraph also applies to the spouse of the person who ceased to participate in the plan and was eligible for a pension.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 26; 1968, c. 62, s. 3; 1973, c. 12, s. 206; 1977, c. 23, s. 30; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 78; 1997, c. 50, s. 71; 2007, c. 43, s. 106.
45. If the beneficiary of a pension contemplated in sections 50 and 53 dies before the pension becomes payable or, as the case may be, before it is paid, the spouse is entitled, from the death, to one-half of the pension,
(1)  reduced as in section 38, from the month following the death, even if the beneficiary dies before reaching 65 years of age;
(2)  not reduced as in section 38, if, at the time of death of the beneficiary, the spouse is not entitled to any pension under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9).
1966-67, c. 64, s. 13; 1973, c. 12, s. 207; 1983, c. 24, s. 2.
45.1. The pension computed pursuant to subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 44 and pursuant to paragraph 2 of section 45 shall not exceed 66 2/3% of the pension that the pensioner was receiving or, as the case may be, would otherwise have been entitled to receive, or that the teacher would have been entitled to receive, after the reduction provided for in section 38.
1997, c. 50, s. 72.
46. For the purposes of the plan, the spouse is the person who is married to or in a civil union with the teacher or pensioner, as the case may be, or, provided neither is married or in a civil union at the time of the death of the teacher or pensioner, the person of the opposite or the same sex who had been living in a conjugal relationship with the teacher or pensioner for a period of not less than three years immediately prior to the teacher’s or pensioner’s death, and had been publicly represented as the teacher’s or pensioner’s spouse by the teacher or pensioner or who, during the year prior to the teacher’s or pensioner’s death, was living in a conjugal relationship with the teacher or pensioner while one of the following situations occurred :
(1)  a child was or is to be born of their union;
(2)  they adopted a child together; or
(3)  one of them adopted a child of the other.
1974, c. 63, s. 14; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 79; 1999, c. 14, s. 24; 2000, c. 32, s. 58; 2002, c. 6, s. 186.
47. Each child of the pensioner, of the teacher or, as the case may be, of the beneficiary of a pension contemplated in sections 50 and 53 who is unmarried and is under 18 years of age, or under 21 years of age if he is a full-time student in an educational institution designated in Schedule I or in any other institution designated by regulation, is entitled to receive, as a pension,
(1)  if a pension is paid to the spouse, 10% of the pension used as the basis for computing the spouse’s pension, reduced as in section 38;
(2)  if the pensioner, the teacher or, as the case may be, the beneficiary has no spouse entitled to a pension, 20% of the pension that would have been used as the basis for computing the spouse’s pension, reduced as in section 38;
(3)  if the spouse of the pensioner, of the teacher or, as the case may be, of the beneficiary dies while receiving a pension, 20% of the pension used as the basis for computing the spouse’s pension and indexed from the death of the pensioner, of the teacher or, as the case may be, of the beneficiary, reduced as in section 38.
However, where there are more than four children, an amount representing 10% or 20% of the pension, as the case may be, multiplied by 4, is divided equally among all the children.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 27; 1966-67, c. 64, s. 14; 1970, c. 56, s. 23; 1977, c. 23, s. 31; 1982, c. 33, s. 29; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1990, c. 5, s. 32.
48. A pension granted to a child under 18 years of age is paid to the person whose dependent he is.
The pension granted to the child is paid from the day the spouse’s pension is payable or would be payable if the pensioner, teacher or beneficiary had a spouse entitled to a pension or, as the case may be, from the month following the death of the spouse who was receiving a pension.
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 28; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1990, c. 5, s. 33.

DEFERRED PENSION
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
50. A teacher who, after 10 years of service and before being entitled to a pension, ceases to participate in this plan is entitled to only a deferred pension, unless
(1)  his years and parts of a year of service are transferred to the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, the Pension Plan of Certain Teachers or the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services;
(2)  he benefits by a transfer agreement concerning this plan, made under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
1965 (1st sess.), c. 68, s. 31 (part); 1966-67, c. 64, s. 16; 1974, c. 63, s. 15; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 105; 1987, c. 107, s. 219; 1988, c. 82, s. 80; 1990, c. 32, s. 31; 1990, c. 87, s. 105; 2001, c. 31, s. 372.
51. The deferred pension is payable, as the case may be,
(1)  from 65 years of age;
(2)  from 60 years of age, in the case of a female teacher;
(3)  from the time the teacher is totally and permanently disabled within the meaning of subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 32;
(4)  from the time he begins to receive the retirement pension acquired as a Member of the National Assembly or, if he has made the election provided for in section 5.0.1, from the time he ceases to be a member of this plan, it he became a Member before 1 January 1992.
Notwithstanding section 41, a teacher who is entitled to a deferred pension is deemed to retire on the same day.
1977, c. 23, s. 33; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1988, c. 82, s. 81; 1992, c. 9, s. 6; 1992, c. 16, s. 13; 1993, c. 41, s. 34; 2000, c. 32, s. 59.
52. A teacher who becomes a Member of the National Assembly before a pension or deferred pension is granted to him is entitled to such pension for the years and parts of a year of service credited to him under this plan provided they have not been transferred to another pension plan, if he acquires the right to a retirement pension as a Member of the National Assembly and repays any contributions reimbursed to him.
Where the Member became a Member before 1 January 1992, the pension shall be payable from the time he begins to receive the retirement pension acquired as a Member of the National Assembly or, if he makes the election provided for in section 5.0.1, from the time he ceases to be a member of this plan.
1977, c. 23, s. 33; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 107, s. 220; 1992, c. 9, s. 7; 1992, c. 16, s. 14; 1993, c. 41, s. 35.
53. A teacher who reached fifty years of age before 1 July 1968 and ceased to hold a position contemplated in this plan before that date but after twenty or more years of service, including three during the five years preceding the date he ceased to hold the position, is entitled to a pension payable from fifty-six years of age.
1977, c. 23, s. 33; 1977, c. 5, s. 14; 1983, c. 24, s. 2.
54. Any deferred pension is cancelled if the teacher again becomes a member of this plan, and the years of service he accumulates are added to the years of service already credited.
1982, c. 33, s. 30; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 106.
55. The annual amount of the deferred pension is computed in the same manner as the pension.
The deferred pension is paid to the pensioner for life.
1982, c. 21, s. 1; 1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 107.
DIVISION IV
REIMBURSEMENTS
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
56. A teacher who ceased to participate in the plan before becoming entitled to a pension or to only a deferred pension is entitled to the refund of his contributions except if he is a participant.
In case of death, the contributions shall be refunded to his spouse or, if he has no spouse, to his successors.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1985, c. 18, s. 35; 1987, c. 47, s. 108; 1987, c. 107, s. 221; 1988, c. 82, s. 82; 1990, c. 5, s. 34; 1995, c. 46, s. 31.
57. If a teacher dies before any pension may be granted to him, the contributions are reimbursed to his successors. The same rule applies where no pension is payable upon the death of a pensioner.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 2002, c. 30, s. 85.
57.1. If the total of the amounts paid as pension benefits is less than the sum of the contributions, the difference, subject to sections 58 to 60, shall be reimbursed to the teacher’s successors, whether or not the teacher was a pensioner, at the time payment of a pension to the last person entitled thereto ceases.
2002, c. 30, s. 86.
58. For the purposes of this division, contributions include every amount paid by the teacher and every contribution from which he was exempt under this plan or under any other pension plan out of which service has been transferred to this plan, but do not include contributions deducted in excess for the years subsequent to the year 1986. Contributions also include any interest accrued on such amounts in accordance with the pension plan concerned. However, contributions do not include any amount reimbursed to the teacher under any such pension plan if, where service was transferred on an actuarially equivalent basis, the total amount of accumulated contributions exceeded the actuarial value of the benefits accrued under the new pension plan.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 107, s. 222.
59. Contributions are reimbursed without interest unless they are transferred to another pension plan under an agreement respecting this plan entered into under section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 109; 1987, c. 107, s. 223.
60. At the time of a reimbursement of contributions, the total amount of contributions of a teacher is reduced by the amounts paid as pension benefits under this plan and under any pension plan from which service has not been transferred to this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 107, s. 224.
60.1. Every application for the refund of contributions must be filed with Retraite Québec by means of the prescribed form.
1988, c. 82, s. 83; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
DIVISION IV.1
WAIVER
2007, c. 43, s. 107.
60.2. The spouse may waive the spousal benefits granted under the pension plan before the date of the death of the teacher, the person who ceased to participate in the plan or the pensioner. The spouse may also revoke the waiver before that date.
To be valid, the waiver or revocation must bear on all spousal benefits and be served on Retraite Québec by means of a notice that must be received on a date that is prior to the date of death and contain the information determined by regulation.
The spouse’s waiver is cancelled if, on the date of the pensioner’s death, no refund of the contributions referred to in section 58 is payable to the pensioner’s successors. The computation is calculated at the date of death as though there were no children entitled to a pension, and based on the data known to Retraite Québec on the date of its decision; that data is deemed to be accurate. When the spouse’s waiver is cancelled, the spouse may receive the benefits the spouse is entitled to under the pension plan.
Despite the spouse’s waiver, the pension plan is deemed to grant the spouse a right to death benefits for the purposes of article 415 of the Civil Code.
2007, c. 43, s. 107; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
DIVISION V
TEACHER RECEIVING PENSION BENEFITS AND A SALARY
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
61. A teacher 65 years of age or over may continue to hold a position contemplated by this plan and receive benefits as a pensioner, and the rules provided in sections 61 to 72 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) apply, with the necessary modifications.
However, the provisions of the first paragraph do not apply from 31 December of the year in which the teacher attains 69 years of age, and the teacher shall receive his benefits at the latest from that date, even if he holds a position contemplated by this plan.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1991, c. 77, s. 81; 1997, c. 50, s. 73.
DIVISION VI
MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
1983, c. 24, s. 2.
62. For the purposes of eligibility for and computation of any teacher’s pension, a maximum of 90 contributory days may be added to the service credited to the teacher after 30 June 1965 to enable him to make up any period of absence without pay while he was holding pensionable employment, except on contrary notice from the teacher.
The first paragraph does not apply to service credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 110; 1987, c. 107, s. 225.
62.1. The years and parts of a year of service that were recognized solely for purposes of entitlement to a pension under the Civil Service Superannuation Plan and the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services are added, for purposes of entitlement to any pension, to the years of service credited pursuant to section 16. The same rule applies to years and parts of a year of service not credited under this plan by reason of the application of section 27.1 and to the years and parts of a year of service recognized solely for purposes of entitlement to a pension under an agreement of transferability under this plan entered into under section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), if they have not otherwise been credited pursuant to section 27.2 or, as the case may be, pursuant to the relevant agreement.
1987, c. 107, s. 226; 1990, c. 87, s. 105.
63. Every pension is indexed annually, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9),
(1)  for that part attributable to service prior to 1 July 1982, by the rate of increase in the Pension Index determined by that Act;
(2)  for that part attributable to service subsequent to 30 June 1982 but prior to 1 January 2000, by the amount by which the rate of increase in the Pension Index exceeds 3%; however, that part of the pension is indexed by one half of the rate of increase in the Pension Index if the Government decides to index the part of the pension credited through government contributions under section 77.0.2 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10);
(3)  for that part attributable to service subsequent to 31 December 1999, by the formula provided for in subparagraph 2 of this paragraph or by one-half of the rate of increase in the Pension Index, according to the formula which is the most advantageous.
Where the number of years of service credited exceeds the number of years of service that are used to compute the pension, subparagraphs 1 to 3 of the first paragraph are applied in the order which is the most advantageous for the pensioner.
Deferred pensions are indexed in the same manner. Indexing applies, in this case, only from 1 January following the date on which the pension is payable.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 2000, c. 32, s. 60; 2011, c. 24, s. 28.
64. The first indexing of a pension, except that of a deferred pension, is made proportionately
(1)  to the number of days for which the pension was or would have been paid during the year in which the teacher ceased to participate in this plan in relation to the total number of days in that year;
(2)  as the case may be, to the number of days for which the pension was or would have been paid during the year of the teacher’s death, in relation to the total number of days in that year.
In the case of a deferred pension, the first indexing is made proportionately to the number of days for which the pension was paid or would have been paid during the year in which the teacher retired in relation to the total number of days in that year.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1997, c. 50, s. 74.
65. In no case may a pension granted, before 1 January 2000, after 10 years of credited service, except a child’s pension or pensions under sections 50 and 53, be less,
(1)  if the pension became payable before 1 July 1982, than $2,740, indexed annually and at the time prescribed in accordance with section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan(chapter R-9), by the rate of increase in the Pension Index determined by the said Act, less the basic amount of the pension payable under the said Act, even if that pension is not paid;
(2)  if the pension became payable after 1 July 1982, than $2,740, indexed at the time prescribed by the said section 119 and for each year concerned after that date, and until the year in which it became payable, by the rate of increase in the index and, for following years, indexed as provided in section 63, reduced as in section 38 or paragraph 1 of sections 44 and 45, as the case may be, even if no pension under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan is paid.
However, the first paragraph applies only with respect to that part of the pension established under paragraph 1 of section 33.2 and the amount provided for in that paragraph is multiplied by the fraction that the number of years of service credited before 1 January 1992 is of the total number of years of service credited.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1987, c. 107, s. 227; 1992, c. 67, s. 67; 2000, c. 32, s. 61; 2008, c. 25, s. 66.
66. Retraite Québec, upon the application of a beneficiary other than a beneficiary contemplated in the first paragraph of section 61, may at any time after the pension becomes payable, make cash payment of the actuarial value, established according to the actuarial assumptions and methods determined by regulation, of a pension if the aggregate amount does not exceed $811 annually.
In no case may cash payment of the actuarial value of a child’s pension or a pension granted by reason of a total and permanent disability within the meaning of subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 32 be made if, in the latter case, the pensioner is under 65 years of age.
The amount of $811 is, at the time prescribed under section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), indexed annually by the rate of increase in the Pension Index established by the said Act.
1983, c. 24, s. 2; 1986, c. 44, s. 94; 1987, c. 107, s. 228; 1991, c. 14, s. 35; 2000, c. 32, s. 62; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.

1997, c. 7, s. 31.
66.5.

1997, c. 7, s. 31.
66.6. If a teacher who could have availed himself of the measures provided for by this division dies before the measures cease to apply in his respect, the spouse’s pension shall be computed as if the teacher had retired on the day of his death.

§ 3.  — Actuarial valuation
1997, c. 7, s. 31.

CHAPTER V.1
PARTITION AND ASSIGNMENT OF BENEFITS BETWEEN SPOUSES
1990, c. 5, s. 35.
72.1. From the introduction of an application for separation from bed and board, divorce or marriage annulment, for the dissolution or annulment of a civil union or for the payment of a compensatory allowance, the teacher or former teacher and his or her spouse are entitled to obtain, upon application to Retraite Québec on the conditions and according to the terms prescribed by regulation, a statement setting out the value of the benefits accrued by the teacher or former teacher under this plan, the value of such benefits for the period of the marriage or civil union and any other information determined by regulation.
The teacher or former teacher and his or her spouse are also entitled to obtain such a statement, upon application to Retraite Québec on the conditions and according to the terms prescribed by regulation, for the purposes of mediation conducted prior to proceedings in family matters or of a joint procedure before a notary for the dissolution of their civil union.
1990, c. 5, s. 35; 1995, c. 70, s. 49; 2002, c. 6, s. 187; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
72.1.1. If a teacher or former teacher and his or her spouse of the opposite or the same sex have ceased living together and neither was married or in a civil union on the date on which they ceased living together, and provided that the spouse had been living in a conjugal relationship with the teacher or former teacher and had been publicly represented as the teacher’s or former teacher’s spouse for a period of not less than three years immediately prior to the date on which they ceased living together, or provided that, during the year preceding that date, the spouse was living in a conjugal relationship with the teacher or former teacher and
(1)  a child was or is to be born of their union,
(2)  they adopted a child together, or
(3)  one of them adopted a child of the other,
they may agree, within 12 months following the date on which they ceased living together and on the conditions and according to the terms prescribed by regulation, to a partition of the benefits accrued by the teacher or former teacher under this pension plan; such an agreement may not, however, confer on the spouse more than 50% of the value of such benefits.
For that purpose, the teacher or former teacher and the spouse are entitled to obtain, upon application made to Retraite Québec on the conditions and according to the terms prescribed by regulation, a statement setting out the value of the benefits accrued by the teacher or former teacher under this plan, established as at the date on which they ceased living together, and any other information determined by the regulation.
2018, c. 42018, c. 4, s. 34.
72.2. For the purposes of their partition and assignment, the benefits accrued under this plan shall be established according to the rules fixed by regulation, which may differ from the rules otherwise applicable under this Act and under Title IV of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10). The benefits shall be assessed in accordance with the actuarial rules, assumptions and methods determined by regulation, which may vary according to the nature of the benefits established.
The benefits shall be established and assessed on the date on which the spouses ceased living together, on the date of institution of the proceedings or on the date determined in the notarized transaction settling the consequences of the dissolution of the civil union, as the case may be.
1990, c. 5, s. 35; 1995, c. 70, s. 50; 2002, c. 6, s. 188.
72.3. Retraite Québec, upon an application made on the conditions and according to the terms prescribed by regulation, shall pay the sums awarded to the spouse. The regulation may also prescribe rules, conditions and terms for the payment of such sums and, where applicable, the interest payable thereon.
1990, c. 5, s. 35; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
72.4. Every sum paid to the spouse, the interest yielded by it and the benefits constituted with such sums shall be inalienable and unseizable.
1990, c. 5, s. 35.
72.5.
