2. This pension plan applies to a person who has never availed himself of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) and who
(1)  is a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or the Pension Plan of Management Personnel;
(2)  is receiving a pension or is entitled to a deferred annuity under any of the pension plans referred to in paragraph 1;
(3)  has obtained the refund of his contributions under any of the pension plans referred to in paragraph 1;
(4)  has never before been a member of any of the pension plans referred to in paragraph 1.
This plan does not apply if the person is a member of the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services. It applies, however, to a person to whom this Act has previously applied and to a person who has availed himself of section 38 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services (chapter R-9.2), as it read before 1 January 2005, if they hold pensionable employment under the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) or if they hold or again hold pensionable employment under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), unless they are pensioners under this plan, the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or the Pension Plan of Management Personnel.
1986, c. 44, s. 2; 1987, c. 47, s. 161; 1987, c. 107, s. 150; 1988, c. 82, s. 155; 1990, c. 87, s. 105; 2001, c. 31, s. 215; 2004, c. 39, s. 61.

(1)  a teaching religious laicized after 30 June 1965;
(2)  a teaching religious laicized before 1 July 1965 who, after being laicized, was not 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);
(3)  a former teaching religious laicized after 30 June 1965;
(4)  a lay teacher having taught in Québec at the primary, secondary or college level, in a private institution belonging to a religious community or to the secular clergy, or in a youth protection institution, who has never been a member of the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act; or
(5)  a laicized teacher having belonged to the secular clergy who has years of teaching to his credit with an educational institution designated in Schedule I to the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan (chapter R-11).
A teaching religious is a teacher who, before 1 July 1965, belonged to a religious community referred to in Schedule I.
1986, c. 44, s. 3; 1987, c. 47, s. 162; 1987, c. 107, s. 151; 1993, c. 74, s. 4.
4. For the purposes of section 3, a teacher is a person holding or having held
(1)  a position as a teacher or professor;
(2)  a position entailing counselling, animation, coordination or administrative duties directly related to the administration of programs of studies, the academic organization of schools, the personal or academic development of students, teachers or professors, extracurricular activities or to services for students; or
(3)  any position for which the experience and knowledge acquired by a person in a position referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 are relevant, although the position is not directly related to teaching activities.
For the purposes of this plan, a person to whom this plan applies is deemed to hold pensionable employment when he holds a full-time or part-time position or employment contemplated by the plan, which includes, among other periods, any period during which he is absent without pay, is entitled to salary insurance benefits and, in the case of a female person, is on maternity leave. When a person holds employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days, the person is also deemed to hold pensionable employment until the end of the employment contract if the contract ends on 30 June of any year.
For the purposes of this plan, salary insurance means the salary insurance that is mandatory for the person, but does not include the salary insurance referred to in section 29.1 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), to which reference is made in section 8 of this Act.
The Government shall identify by regulation the categories of persons who hold pensionable employment for which the basis of remuneration is 200 days.
1986, c. 44, s. 4; 1987, c. 47, s. 163; 1988, c. 82, s. 156; 1995, c. 70, s. 1; 2002, c. 30, s. 1; 2008, c. 25, s. 29.
4.0.1. For the purposes of this plan, an absence without pay is an absence that is provided for in the conditions of employment of the absent person and authorized by his employer, for which the person does not receive pay, and during which the person 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 person to whom this plan applies.
2018, c. 42018, c. 4, s. 2.
4.1. For the purposes of this plan, a person shall participate in a pension plan from his first day of service in pensionable employment.
The person shall participate in a plan as long as he remains a person to whom the plan is applicable. However, for the purposes of eligibility for and computation of benefits under this plan, where the person ceases to be a person to whom this plan is applicable for any period during which he is not in service in pensionable employment, that person 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.
Participation in this plan shall cease, at the latest, on 30 December of the year in which the person attains 69 years of age.
1988, c. 82, s. 157; 1997, c. 50, s. 1; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.

CHAPTER IV
TRANSFER AND PURCHASE OF SERVICE
DIVISION I
TRANSFER
10. Every person who had been or who was a member of the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan before this plan became applicable to him shall have credited, for pension purposes, or counted, for membership eligibility purposes under this plan, the years and parts of a year of service credited or counted under any of those plans if his contributions have not been refunded.
1986, c. 44, s. 10; 1987, c. 47, s. 167; 2001, c. 31, s. 219.
11. A person who has complied with section 6 shall be credited, for pension purposes, with the years and parts of a year of service credited under the pension plan to which he was a member as if they were years and parts of a year of service credited under this plan.
1986, c. 44, s. 11; 1987, c. 47, s. 167.
DIVISION II
PURCHASE OF SERVICE
12. A person, except a person who, between 1 July 1965 and 30 June 1973, became a pensioner or became entitled to a deferred annuity under the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, must, to become eligible for benefits under this plan, redeem the years or parts of a year of past service in an employment with a body contemplated in the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or with a body which, in the opinion of Retraite Québec, would have been contemplated therein had it not ceased to exist. Any pension credit that may have been granted under section 86, 100 or 104 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), section 28.5.6 of the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan (chapter R-11) or section 99.17.1 of the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan (chapter R-12) is cancelled and the service that entitled the person to the pension credit is deemed to be credited to him under this division.
In no case, however, may a person redeem the years or parts of a year in respect of a pension, a deferred annuity or a paid-up annuity, within the meaning of section 76 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, is payable under a pension plan. The same applies to the years and parts of a year in respect of which a pension credit is payable under section 101 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
1986, c. 44, s. 12; 2001, c. 31, s. 220; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
13. A person who is a member of this plan, a person who has complied with section 6 and, subject to the exception set forth in section 12, a person referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 2, must redeem, in accordance with section 12, a number of years and parts of a year of service which cannot be greater than the excess of the number of years and parts of a year prior to 1 July 1973 credited under section 10 or 11, as the case may be, or credited to their account pursuant to subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 2, over 15.
Where a person was a member of a supplemental pension plan while employed by an employer contemplated by the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), the years and parts of a year prior to 1 July 1973 in respect of which he was granted a pension credit under section 101 of the said Act or in respect of which a paid-up annuity certificate was issued must be included in computing the excess over 15 referred to in the first paragraph.
1986, c. 44, s. 13; 1987, c. 47, s. 168; 1987, c. 107, s. 155.
14. A person referred to in section 7 shall redeem, in accordance with section 12, his years and parts of a year of service, up to 15.
1986, c. 44, s. 14.
15. To redeem his years and parts of a year of past service, a person must pay an amount determined according to the tariff of premiums appearing in Schedule II as if it were a pension credit equal, for each year of service, to 2% of the annual pensionable salary of the person as of 1 July 1973 or, if he has no pensionable salary on that date, his pensionable salary on the nearest date.
For the purpose of determining the amount referred to in the first paragraph, the pension credit is, for each year of service, reduced by 0.7% of the maximum pensionable earnings, within the meaning of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), for the year of the annual pensionable salary concerned.
1986, c. 44, s. 15.
16. Every person to whom the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) was applicable on 1 July 1978 and who did not avail himself thereof will be required to pay the amount determined under section 15 and established as of 1 July 1978. The amount will be increased by interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined for each period in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), for the period between 1 July 1978 and the date of the redemption proposal made by Retraite Québec or, for the purposes of section 5, the date the plan becomes applicable to the person if it is later than the date of the redemption proposal.
In the case of a person laicized after 1 July 1978 or a person referred to in section 7 who became a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan after that date or of the Pension Plan of Management Personnel but, in each case, at a time when the person was entitled to avail himself of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers or, as the case may be, of this plan, the amount determined under section 15 shall be established as of 1 July of the year of laicization or, as the case may be, of the year in which the person became a member of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or of the Pension Plan of Management Personnel. In such cases, the amount is increased by the interest prescribed in the first paragraph, computed from the date on which the amount is established.
1986, c. 44, s. 16; 1987, c. 47, s. 169; 1990, c. 87, s. 2; 1992, c. 67, s. 5; 2001, c. 31, s. 221; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
17. The amount determined under section 15 or, as the case may be, under section 16 must be paid in a lump sum if the person is a pensioner and, if the person is not a pensioner, the amount may be paid by instalments over the period and at the times determined by Retraite Québec. To pay that amount, the person may, however, use all or part of his accumulated sick leave. In such a case, his employer shall pay all or part of the required amount according to the terms and conditions determined by Retraite Québec in accordance with section 95 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10).
If the amount is paid by instalments, it bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate determined 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.
1986, c. 44, s. 17; 1988, c. 82, s. 159; 1990, c. 87, s. 3; 1991, c. 77, s. 1; 1997, c. 50, s. 3; 2007, c. 43, s. 4; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
DIVISION III
SPECIAL PROVISION
18. A person who is a member of this plan may redeem or, as the case may be, be credited under this plan, with any year or part of a year of service which may be redeemed or credited pursuant to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), subject to the conditions prescribed therein.
The person is not entitled, however, to avail himself of the right to redeem any year or part of a year of service pursuant to sections 86, 100 and 104 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
A pensioner under this plan may be credited under this plan with any year or part of a year of service that may be credited to a pensioner under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan by reason of the application of section 115.11 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, provided the pensioner satisfies the conditions prescribed by that section.
1986, c. 44, s. 18; 1987, c. 47, s. 170; 1987, c. 107, s. 156; 1990, c. 87, s. 105; 1995, c. 46, s. 1; 2004, c. 39, s. 62; 2007, c. 43, s. 5.
CHAPTER V
BENEFITS
DIVISION I
ELIGIBILITY FOR AND COMPUTATION OF BENEFITS
19. The pension computed in accordance with sections 34.1 to 37 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and, as the case may be, the pension credits acquired under the said Act shall be granted to every person who avails himself of this plan and who
(1)  attains normal retirement age, that is, 65 years of age;
(2)  has at least 35 years of service;
(3)  attains, in the case of a female employee, 60 years of age;
(4)  has at least 10 years of service and is not under 62 years of age;
(5)  has at least 32 years of service and is not under 55 years of age;

(6)  has at least 22 years of service and is not under 55 years of age or, in the case of a female employee, 50 years of age.
The person must be a member of this plan at the time he retires under any of the criteria listed above except where he continues to hold pensionable employment under the plan after 30 December of the year in which he attains 69 years of age.
A person who is a teacher, within the meaning of the Teachers Pension Plan, and who becomes eligible for a pension within two months after the end of a school year, within the meaning of that plan, is entitled to his pension at the end of that school year.
A person who becomes a Member of the National Assembly before a pension or a deferred pension is granted to him is entitled to such a pension in respect of the years and parts of a year of service that have been credited to him under this plan if these years and parts of a year have not been transferred to another pension plan, if he acquires the right to a pension as a Member and if he repays the contributions that have been refunded to him, where such is the case.
1986, c. 44, s. 19; 1987, c. 47, s. 171; 1990, c. 87, s. 4; 1991, c. 77, s. 2; 1992, c. 67, s. 6; 1997, c. 50, s. 4; 2008, c. 25, s. 30.
20. The amount of the pension of any person to whom this plan applies pursuant to section 2 is increased up to the limit established in section 22 by the addition, in order, of the following amounts:
(1)  an amount equal to 1.6% of the average pensionable salary used for the computation of his pension for each year redeemed by that person under Division II of Chapter IV, unless such years have been credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis;
(2)  an amount equal to 1.6% of such salary for any other year of teaching, unless such years have been credited under this plan on an actuarially equivalent basis.
A year of teaching is any period of at least ten months, not otherwise redeemed or credited, comprised between 1 July of one year and 30 June of the following year, during which a person has taught, in or outside Canada, even if he was employed on a part-time basis, including a similar period during which he has pursued, after beginning to teach, further educational studies full time.
1986, c. 44, s. 20; 1987, c. 107, s. 157; 1991, c. 77, s. 3.
21. The years and parts of a year of service that would be redeemed or credited for the purposes of eligibility for and computation of a person’s pension, or both at the same time, under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) shall be counted under this plan for the purposes set out in those Acts, and section 74 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan or section 111 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, as the case may be, applies.
The years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20 shall be recognized for the purposes of eligibility for the pension.
1986, c. 44, s. 21; 2001, c. 31, s. 222.
22. For the purposes of the increase referred to in section 20, in no case may the total amount of benefits payable to a person under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, the Teachers Pension Plan, the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or this plan, computed before any reduction, exceed 80% of the average pensionable salary, which is the total of the following amounts:
(1)  80% of the average pensionable salary used to compute the pension for the years and parts of a year of service credited before 1992 multiplied by the number of years and parts of a year of service credited before 1992 over the total number of years and parts of a year of service credited; and
(2)  80% of the average pensionable salary used to compute the pension for the years and parts of a year of service credited after 1991 multiplied by the number of years and parts of a year of service credited after 1991 over the total number of years and parts of a year of service credited.
The sums, if any, paid to redeem years or parts of a year in respect of which no amount may be added to the amount of the pension pursuant to the first paragraph shall be reimbursed with interest calculated at the rate prescribed in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) in respect of the period indicated therein from the date such sums were paid until the day the reimbursement is made.
1986, c. 44, s. 22; 1991, c. 77, s. 4; 2001, c. 31, s. 223; 2008, c. 25, s. 31; 2007, c. 43, s. 6; 2010, c. 29, s. 27; 2016, c. 14, s. 1.
23. The pension granted under subparagraph 5.1 of the first paragraph of section 19 to an employee who redeemed 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 under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 34.2 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), referred to in section 19, by 0.25% per month, computed for each month between the date on which the pension is granted to the employee and the earlier of the following dates:
(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.
However, when the employee ceases to participate in the plan before 1 January 2010, the amount of the pension that must be multiplied by 0.25% under the first paragraph must be determined under subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 35 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan as it reads on the date the employee ceases to participate in the plan.
The pension granted under subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 19, increased in accordance with section 20, and the pension credits, if any, are reduced for their duration by 0.5% per month computed for each month comprised between the date on which the pension is granted to the person and the first date on which the pension would otherwise have been granted to him under subparagraph 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 5.1 of the first paragraph of section 19.
1986, c. 44, s. 23; 1991, c. 77, s. 5; 1997, c. 50, s. 5; 2008, c. 25, s. 32.
24. From the month following the pensioner’s sixty-fifth birthday or from the month following the date on which he retires, if that date is after his sixty-fifth birthday, the pension, increased in accordance with section 20, is reduced by the amount obtained by multiplying
(1)  0.7%;
(2)  the number of years of service credited after 31 December 1965 to which is added the number of years and parts of a year entitling the pensioner to the increase provided by section 20 even where they are prior to 1 January 1966, to the extent only that those years or parts of a year are necessary to attain the maximum of 70% of the average pensionable salary, which is the total of the following amounts:
(a)  70% of the average pensionable salary used to compute the pension for the years and parts of a year of service credited before 1992 multiplied by the number of years and parts of a year of service credited before 1992 over the total number of years and parts of a year of service credited; and
(b)  70% of the average pensionable salary used to compute the pension for the years and parts of a year of service credited after 1991 multiplied by the number of years and parts of a year of service credited after 1991 over the total number of years and parts of a year of service credited;
(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 all the last years of service needed to attain a sum of corresponding contributory periods equal to five or, if the sum is less than five, in respect of all the years.
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.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, for the years prior to 1 January 1966, the maximum pensionable earnings is equal to $5,000.
In no case may the pension, increased in accordance with section 20, be reduced by an amount greater than the amount corresponding to the maximum monthly retirement pension payable under section 116.6 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) for the year in which the pensioner retired, multiplied by 12.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, where a person continues to hold pensionable employment after 30 December of the year in which he attains 69 years of age, the reduction provided for in the first paragraph applies from the month following that date as if he had retired.
1986, c. 44, s. 24; 1987, c. 66, s. 1; 1997, c. 50, s. 6; 2002, c. 79, s. 1; 2010, c. 29, s. 28.
25. The pension, increased in accordance with section 20, is indexed in the manner set out in the first paragraph of section 77 and in section 78 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10). Despite subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of that section 77, the part of the pension attributable to service subsequent to 30 June 1982 but prior to 1 January 2000 is indexed by one half of the rate of increase in the Pension Index determined in the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) 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.
The rate of indexation is, however, in respect of years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20, equal to the excess of the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined in the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan over 3%.
1986, c. 44, s. 25; 1987, c. 47, s. 172; 1990, c. 87, s. 5; 2011, c. 24, s. 20.
26. Sections 24 and 25 also apply to every person who is receiving a pension under the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, taking into account, however, that subparagraph 3 of the first paragraph of section 24 must be read as follows:
“ (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. ”.
1986, c. 44, s. 26.
27. Sections 89 and 91 to 93 and the first paragraph of section 94 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) do not apply to the pension credits, if any, acquired by a person contemplated in this plan.
1986, c. 44, s. 27.
DIVISION I.1
MAXIMUM BENEFITS
1997, c. 50, s. 7.
27.1. The pension amounts computed pursuant to Division I of this chapter shall be granted only within the limits authorized under the Income Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter 1, 5th Supplement).
1997, c. 50, s. 7.
DIVISION II
PAYMENT OF BENEFITS
28. Benefits become payable to the person entitled thereto from the day that person retires. The person is presumed to retire on the day after the day on which he ceases to participate in the plan. However, where the person continues to hold pensionable employment after 30 December of the year in which he attains 69 years of age, the day after the day on which the employee ceases to hold such an employment is the day on which he retires. The pension referred to in the fourth paragraph of section 19 is payable from the time the person begins to receive the retirement pension acquired as a Member of the National Assembly if that person became a Member before 1 January 1992. However, the increase provided for in section 20 and the pension credits, if any, are payable from the sixty-fifth birthday of the person.
1986, c. 44, s. 28; 1991, c. 77, s. 6; 1992, c. 67, s. 7; 1997, c. 50, s. 8.
29. Any person whose pension became payable under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan before 26 June 1986 and who availed himself of this plan before 1 July 1987 shall be entitled to the increase provided by section 20 only in respect of instalments payable to him after 25 June 1986. Section 25, to the extent that it refers to section 78 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), does not apply with respect to the increase if the pension was payable before 1 January 1986. However, if the person had become entitled to a pension under any of the said pension plans by reason of the fact that he had become entitled to a pension as a Member of the National Assembly, the increase provided by section 20 becomes payable from his sixty-fifth birthday if he is not 65 years of age on 26 June 1986.
Any person who has become or becomes eligible for a deferred annuity or a pension by reason of mental or physical disability under any of the pension plans referred to in the first paragraph or under the Pension Plan of Management Personnel is entitled to the increase provided for in section 20 from his sixty-fifth birthday. However, if that person has become eligible, before 26 June 1986, for a deferred annuity under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and meets, taking into account the years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20 and the age at which he ceases to participate in that plan, any of the criteria set out in section 19, his benefits become payable from 26 June 1986 if he availed himself of this plan before 1 July 1987. The computation of the benefits shall be established, with regard to the person’s age, as of 26 June 1986.
Any person referred to in section 6 who has complied with section 13 shall be entitled to his pension and to the increase provided by section 20 from his sixty-fifth birthday. However, if that person is 65 years of age on 26 June 1986 or meets, taking into account the years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20 and the years credited to him under section 11, any of the criteria set out in section 19, his benefits become payable from 26 June 1986 if he availed himself of this plan before 1 July 1987. Entitlement to the benefits and computation thereof shall be established, having regard to the person’s age, as of 26 June 1986.
Where a person contemplated in this section is laicized between 26 June 1986 and 1 July 1987 and avails himself of this plan before that latter date, the benefits that would normally have become payable from 26 June 1986 shall be payable from his date of laicization.
1986, c. 44, s. 29; 1987, c. 47, s. 173; 1988, c. 82, s. 160; 2001, c. 31, s. 224.
30. Any person contemplated in section 29 who avails himself of this plan after 30 June 1987 and any person whose pension became payable under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan after 25 June 1986 shall be entitled to the increase provided by section 20, and, as the case may be, to his benefits in the cases where the increase or benefits become payable from 26 June 1986 under section 29, from, as the case may be, the latest of the following dates:
(1)  the date preceding by not more than 12 months the date of receipt of his application;
(2)  the date of laicization;
(3)  the date on which the pension became payable.
Where the person became entitled to a pension under any of the pension plans referred to in the first paragraph by reason of the fact that he had become entitled to a pension as a Member of the National Assembly, the increase provided by section 20 is payable from his sixty-fifth birthday if he is under 65 years of age on the latest date selected under the first paragraph.
The computation of benefits shall be established, having regard to the person’s age, as of the date selected under the first paragraph or, where such is the case, as of the date of his sixty-fifth birthday pursuant to the second paragraph.
1986, c. 44, s. 30; 1987, c. 66, s. 2.
30.1. For the purposes of sections 29 and 30, any person whose pension became payable under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and who, taking into account the years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20 and the age at which he ceased to be employed, meets any of the criteria set out in section 19, is entitled to a pension computed in accordance with Division I of this chapter instead of the pension he is presently receiving. The new pension shall be computed as though the said division had been in force on the date on which the pension he is presently receiving became payable to him. However, this paragraph does not apply to such a person who became entitled to his pension by reason of the fact that he had become entitled to a pension as a Member of the National Assembly.
A person shall be entitled to the new pension only in respect of the instalments payable to him after 25 June 1986 or, in the case of a person contemplated in section 30, from the date the increase provided by section 20 becomes payable to him under section 30.
1987, c. 66, s. 3.
31. Benefits are paid to the pensioner until the first day of the month following the pensioner’s death or, in the case of the death 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 until the first day of the month following the person’s death.
1986, c. 44, s. 31; 1992, c. 67, s. 8; 1994, c. 20, s. 4; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 1999, c. 73, s. 1; 2007, c. 43, s. 7.
DIVISION III
SPOUSE’S PENSION
1990, c. 87, s. 6.
32. 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 person who is entitled to a pension, the spouse shall be entitled to receive as pension one-half of the pension, increased in accordance with section 20, that the pensioner was receiving or, as the case may be, would otherwise have been entitled to receive, or which the person would have been entitled to receive, with, in every case, the reduction prescribed in section 24 or, as the case may be, section 26 from the month following the death, even where the pensioner or eligible person dies before attaining 65 years of age. However, in the case of a pension granted under the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan (chapter R-11) or the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan (chapter R-12), section 26 applies only in respect of years or parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20 if, at the time of death of the pensioner, the spouse is not entitled to a pension under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9).
The years and parts of a year of service for which a pension credit is granted under sections 101, 113 and 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and those for which the increase provided by section 20 of this Act is granted shall be added, for the purposes of eligibility for a pension, to the years of service credited to the person to determine, in the event of death, the spouse’s eligibility for a pension even where the person died before having made all the instalments required to pay the cost of the pension credit or, as the case may be, the cost of redemption of service under Division II of Chapter IV of this Act. However, the pension increase provided by section 20 shall apply to the spouse’s pension only if the spouse pays the balance of the amounts required to pay the cost of redemption of service.
1986, c. 44, s. 32; 1988, c. 82, s. 161.
33. For the purposes of the plan, the spouse is the person who is married to or in a civil union with the employee 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 employee or pensioner, the person of the opposite or the same sex who has been living in a conjugal relationship with the employee or pensioner for a period of not less than three years immediately prior to the employee’s or pensioner’s death, and had been publicly represented as the employee’s or pensioner’s spouse by the employee or pensioner or who, during the year preceding the employee’s or pensioner’s death, was living in a conjugal relationship with the employee 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.
1986, c. 44, s. 33; 1988, c. 82, s. 162; 1999, c. 14, s. 20; 2000, c. 32, s. 2; 2002, c. 6, s. 174.
34. The pension granted to the spouse is paid for life and runs until the first day of the month following his death.
1986, c. 44, s. 34; 1987, c. 107, s. 158; 1988, c. 82, s. 163; 1990, c. 87, s. 7.
DIVISION III.1
REIMBURSEMENT, DEFERRED ANNUITIES AND OTHER BENEFITS
1990, c. 87, s. 7.
34.1. The contributions of a person who dies before becoming eligible for a pension shall, subject to sections 34.12 and 34.13, be refunded to his spouse or, where he has no spouse, to his successors with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) until the date of death, and at the rate determined in Schedule VII to that Act from the day following the date of death until the date the refund is paid.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2004, c. 39, s. 63.
34.1.1. If a pensioner who dies has no spouse entitled to a pension, the contributions are refunded to the employee’s successors, subject to sections 34.12 and 34.13. The same applies to an employee who dies while eligible for a pension but who has no spouse entitled to a pension. However, in the latter case, the contributions are refunded with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) until the date of death, and at the rate determined in Schedule VII to that Act from the day following the date of death until the date the refund is paid.
2002, c. 30, s. 2; 2004, c. 39, s. 64.
34.1.2. Following the death of a spouse who was receiving a pension under Division III of this chapter, the successors of the employee, whether or not the employee had been a pensioner, are entitled to receive, subject to section 34.12, the difference between the sum of the contributions and the amounts of pension paid.
2002, c. 30, s. 2.
34.2. If a person ceases to be a member of this plan before becoming eligible for a pension, and if he has less than two years of service, he is entitled to obtain the refund of his contribution with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) until the date the application is received at Retraite Québec and at the rate determined in Schedule VII to that Act from the day following that date until the date the refund is paid, as long as he does not again become a member of the plan and subject to sections 34.12 and 34.13. However, he is not entitled to the refund if section 21 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, referred to in section 9 of this Act, applies.
Where the person dies before obtaining the refund, his contributions shall be refunded to his spouse or, where he has no spouse, to his successors.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2004, c. 39, s. 65; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
34.3. If a person ceases to be a member of this plan before becoming eligible for a pension or deferred annuity, he may, if he has at least two years of service, apply for a deferred annuity or, subject to sections 34.12 and 34.13, the refund of his contributions with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) until the date the application is received at Retraite Québec and at the rate determined in Schedule VII to that Act from the day following that date until the date the refund is paid. However, he may not obtain such a refund if section 21 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, referred to in section 9 of this Act, applies, or if he again becomes a member of the plan, or after he has reached 65 years of age.
Where the person dies before obtaining the refund of his contributions and before his deferred annuity becomes payable, his contributions shall be refunded to his spouse or, where he has no spouse, to his successors.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2004, c. 39, s. 66; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
34.4. If a person referred to in sections 34.2 and 34.3 again becomes a member of this plan without having obtained the refund of his contributions, the years and parts of a year of service he accumulates are added to those already credited.
1990, c. 87, s. 7.
34.5. The contributions shall, except in case of death, be payable to the person entitled to the refund thereof from the 211th day after the day on which this plan ceased to apply to him for the last time.
Every application for a refund of contributions must be filed with Retraite Québec by means of the prescribed form.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
34.6. For the purposes of this division, contributions include every amount paid by the person and every contribution from which he was exempt under this plan or under any other pension plan from which his service was transferred to this plan, but excluding contributions deducted in excess for any year subsequent to 1986. Contributions also include any interest accrued on those amounts, where applicable, in accordance with the pension plan in question. However, contributions do not include amounts refunded to the person under any such pension plan following a transfer of service made on the basis of actuarially equivalent benefits, where the total amount of accumulated contributions exceeded the actuarial value of the benefits vested under the other pension plan.
However, any sums paid by a person to a supplemental pension plan established by an included employer within the meaning of the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan shall be reimbursed if the funds have been transferred in accordance with the said plan.
1990, c. 87, s. 7.
34.7. A person who has at least 10 years of service and is 45 years of age or over, and who ceases to be a member of this plan before becoming eligible for a pension, is entitled, except if he has availed himself of a transfer agreement in respect of this plan entered into pursuant to section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), only to one or other of the following options:
(1)  a deferred annuity;
(2)  an amount representing up to 25% of the actuarial value of the deferred annuity, and a deferred annuity adjusted to take into account the payment of that amount.
The actuarial value is established according to the actuarial assumptions and methods determined by regulation under paragraph 9 of section 134 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan in respect of section 54 of the said Act.
However, in no case may the amount exceed the amount of the accumulated contributions of the person with interest.
The first paragraph does not apply where section 21 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, referred to in section 9 of this Act, applies.
Where the person dies before the deferred annuity becomes payable, the contributions, subject to the amount paid pursuant to subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph and pursuant to sections 34.12 and 34.13, shall be refunded to his spouse or, where he has no spouse, to his successors, with interest, compounded annually, at the rates determined in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan until the date of death and at the rate determined in Schedule VII to that Act from the day following the date of death until the date the refund is paid.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2004, c. 39, s. 67.
34.8. The years and parts of a year which give entitlement to the increase provided for in section 20 shall be counted for the purposes of eligibility for the deferred annuity, and section 21 applies to the deferred annuity.
In addition, for the purposes of eligibility for the deferred annuity, every continuous period of service from the first day the person accumulates service after 31 December 1965 must be counted.
Any period between the day on which the person ceased to be a member of Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel or this plan and the day on which such a plan ceased to apply to him, and any period of less than 211 days during which such a plan ceased to apply to him, must also be counted if such periods are prior to his last participation.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2001, c. 31, s. 225.
34.9. Any deferred annuity is cancelled if the person again holds pensionable employment under this plan, and the years of service he accumulates are added to the years of service already credited.
However, if the person retires at the age of 65 and had elected to receive an amount and a deferred annuity, the recomputed pension is reduced by that part of the annual value of the original pension that was paid to him. If the person retires at an age other than 65, the annual value of the original pension paid is adjusted, taking into account the age of the person at the time of retirement according to the actuarial assumptions and methods determined by regulation in accordance with section 53 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R‐10). If he is entitled to a deferred annuity at the time he ceases to be a member of this plan, he cannot reapply for an amount representing up to 25% of the actuarial value of the recomputed pension.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2004, c. 39, s. 68.
34.10. The annual amount of the deferred annuity is computed in the same manner as the pension, and sections 22 and 24 apply.
A person who is entitled to a deferred annuity is deemed to retire on the date of his sixty-fifth birthday. The deferred annuity shall be payable to him from that date and for life, and shall be indexed in accordance with section 25 from 1 January following the date on which he reaches 65 years of age.
1990, c. 87, s. 7.
34.11. Contributions are refunded with interest at the rates determined in Schedules VI and VII to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) depending on the periods of application of those rates provided for in the relevant sections. Contributions accrued with interest during the period of application of the rates determined in Schedule VI may not be less than the contributions.
However, contributions in respect of service which is credited to the person and which gives entitlement to the application of section 99 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, referred to in section 34.17 of this Act, are reimbursed without interest.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2004, c. 39, s. 69.
34.12. When contributions are refunded, if amounts have been paid as pension benefits under this plan or a pension plan from which service has not been transferred to this plan on the basis of actuarially equivalent benefits, the total amount of the contributions, excluding amounts paid by the person in respect of which a pension credit is granted and any interest accrued on the contributions up to the date on which a pension became payable,is reduced by any amounts paid as pension benefits from the date the pension ceased to be paid. For every period during which no amount was paid as pension benefits, the balance of the contributions and any accrued interest bear interest, compounded annually, at the rate determined in Schedule VII in force on the first day of the month following the death and computed from that day.
However, if a pension is payable to the person, spouse or child in accordance with section 99 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or section 140 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1), referred to in section 34.17 of this Act, contributions refunded under sections 34.1 to 34.3 do not include contributions in respect of service giving entitlement to the application of the said section 99 or the said section 140. In that case, the first paragraph of this section applies, at the time the pension becomes payable, in respect of other contributions, but without taking into account the amounts paid as pension benefits in accordance with the said section 99 or the said section 140. However, where the employee is entitled only to a deferred annuity under this plan, or where he has applied for a deferred annuity under section 34.3, the amounts paid as pension benefits in accordance with the said section 99 or the said section 140 are deducted only from the amount of contributions in respect of service giving entitlement to the application of the said section 99 or the said section 140, if that pension is more advantageous than the benefits provided for under this plan.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2001, c. 31, s. 226; 2004, c. 39, s. 70.
34.13. If, at the death of the beneficiary of a pension credit, the amount he had to pay to acquire the pension credit, with accrued interest until the date on which the pension credit became payable, exceeds the total amounts which have been paid to him in respect of such pension credit, the excess is paid in a single payment to his spouse or, if he has no spouse, to his successors.
If benefits related to the pension credit ceased to be paid to a person who holds or again holds pensionable employment under this plan, the amount he was required to pay to acquire the pension credit, with accrued interest until the date on which the pension credit became payable, is reduced by the amounts paid in respect of such pension credit from the date on which payment thereof had ceased.
For every period during which no amount was paid as pension credit in a given year or, as the case may be, during the period referred to in section 69 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) under section 36 of this Act, the balance of the amount the person was required to pay bears interest, compounded annually, at the rate determined in Schedule VII in force on the first day of the month following the death and computed from that day.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2004, c. 39, s. 71.
34.14. The interest payable under this division is compounded annually at the rates determined, for each period, in Schedule VI to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and at the rate determined in Schedule VII to that Act for the period of application provided for in the relevant sections.
The rate of interest determined in Schedule VII is the rate in force on the day preceding the date the period of application provided for in the relevant sections begins, unless otherwise provided.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2004, c. 39, s. 72.
34.15. The person, his spouse or, where he has no spouse, his successors, are entitled to only a percentage of the interest payable on contributions within the meaning of section 34.6. This percentage is dependent on the length of the period comprised between the date on which this plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel, or the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, as the case may be, became applicable to the person and the date the refund is made. The percentage is established as follows:
(1)  0% for a period of less than one year;
(2)  60% for a period of one year or more, but less than two years;
(3)  85% for a period of two years or more, but less than five years;
(4)  90% for a period of five years or more.
If the application for reimbursement covers interrupted periods of service, the percentage of interest payable on contributions is dependent on the length of the period comprised between the first date on which this plan, the Pension Plan of Management Personnel or the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, as the case may be, became applicable to the person and the date the refund is made.
However, the first and second paragraphs do not apply in computing interest accrued under this plan for the purposes of section 71 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services (chapter R-9.2).
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 1995, c. 46, s. 31; 2001, c. 31, s. 227.
34.16. For the purpose of computing interest, a person’s contributions within the meaning of section 34.6, except amounts paid into a pension plan from which service has been transferred to this plan in accordance with sections 101 and 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or section 203 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1), are deemed to be received at the midpoint of the period during which the person participated in a plan in the course of a year. The interest on any contribution within the meaning of section 34.6 is computed in accordance with section 219 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, adapted as required.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2001, c. 31, s. 228; 2004, c. 39, s. 73; 2007, c. 43, s. 8.
34.17. Sections 99 and 236.2 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and section 140 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) apply, adapted as required.
1990, c. 87, s. 7; 2001, c. 31, s. 229.
35. Retraite Québec, upon the application of a beneficiary other than a person contemplated in section 36, to the extent that it refers to Division IV of Chapter IV of Title I of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), may, at any time after the pension becomes payable, make cash payment of the actuarial value, established in accordance with the actuarial assumptions and methods determined by regulation under paragraph 9 of section 134 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan with respect to section 79 of the said Act, of all benefits under this plan if the aggregate amount of the benefits does not exceed $811 annually.

DIVISION III.1.1
WAIVER
2007, c. 43, s. 9.
35.0.1. The spouse may waive the spousal benefits granted under the pension plan before the date of the death of the person who is a member of the plan, of the person who ceased to participate in the plan or of 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 34.6 is payable to the pensioner’s successors. The computation is calculated at the date of death 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. 9; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.

The person referred to herein must be
(1)  a teaching religious laicized before 1 July 1965 who has been 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

1986, c. 44, s. 38; 1987, c. 47, s. 175; 1988, c. 82, s. 165.
39. The amount to which the person referred to in section 38 is entitled is equal to the difference between
(1)  the amount of the pension and benefits he will receive at the time the amount computed under this section becomes payable; and
(2)  the amount of the pension he would be receiving, excluding the years and parts of a year redeemed under the pension fund of officers of education established by Part VIII of the Education Act (Revised Statutes of Québec, 1964, chapter 235) and adding an amount equal, for all his years and parts of a year of teaching within the meaning of the second paragraph of section 20 and for the years and parts of a year redeemed under the said pension fund, to 1.6% of the person’s last annual pensionable salary or of $14,000, if his last annual pensionable salary is less than that amount.
The annual pensionable salary is the pensionable salary, within the meaning of the pension plan of which the person was a member, that he has received or would have received on an annual basis for full-time employment.

40. A person who has not attained 65 years of age before 26 June 1986 and who has transferred his years and parts of a year of service credited under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, to a body with which an agreement was entered into under section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), and who is contemplated in section 3, is entitled to receive, for life, from the age of 65, an amount equal, for each of his years and parts of a year of teaching, within the meaning of the second paragraph of section 20, that have not been transferred, to 1.6% of $14,000.
1986, c. 44, s. 40.
41. The amount computed under section 39 is payable and shall be established at 60 years of age, in the case of a female person who has become entitled to a deferred annuity and at 65 years of age in all other cases. Where the person retires after the age of 65, the amount shall be established at the age of his retirement.
Sections 24, 26, 31 to 33 and 35, adapted as required, apply to benefits payable under sections 39 and 40. For the purposes of sections 24 and 26, however, the amount of the maximum pensionable earnings is equal to $9,300 in all cases where the 1.6% rate is applied to $14,000.
Section 25 applies to benefits payable under sections 39 and 40. The rate of indexation shall, however, with respect to the years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the benefits, be equal to the excess of the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), over 3%.
Payment of the amount computed under section 39 shall be made in a single payment each year in the month of June.

1990, c. 5, s. 9.
41.1. 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 employee or former employee 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 employee or former employee 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 employee or former employee 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. 9; 1995, c. 70, s. 3; 2002, c. 6, s. 175; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
41.1.1. If an employee or former employee 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 employee or former employee and had been publicly represented as the employee’s or former employee’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 employee or former employee 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 employee or former employee 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 employee or former employee 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 employee or former employee 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. 3.
41.2. 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. 9; 1995, c. 70, s. 4; 2002, c. 6, s. 176.

1990, c. 5, s. 9; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
41.4. 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. 9.
41.5. Following payment of the sums awarded to the spouse of the employee or former employee, every sum payable under this plan with respect to the membership of the employee or former employee shall be reduced in accordance with the actuarial rules, assumptions and methods prescribed by regulation, which may vary according to the nature of the benefit from which such sum is derived.
1990, c. 5, s. 9.
41.6. Where, following a separation from bed and board, the value of the benefits accrued by the employee or former employee under this plan has been included in whole or in part in the value of the benefits that may be partitioned, the partition of the family patrimony shall entail, for the spouse who obtained it, the extinction of any other benefit, advantage or reimbursement which he could claim in his quality as spouse, unless the spouses resume living together.
1990, c. 5, s. 9.
41.7. Chapter IV of Title III of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) does not apply to decisions rendered by Retraite Québec concerning the establishment and assessment of the benefits accrued under this plan. Any other decision rendered by Retraite Québec pursuant to this chapter may be contested by the employee or former employee and his spouse in the manner provided for this plan.

CHAPTER VII
TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS
42. Chapter III, Division III of Chapter IV and Chapter V apply to a person who has already availed himself of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) and who is an employee within the meaning of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10). Any pension credit to which the person has become entitled under sections 86, 100 and 104 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan is cancelled.
However, if the person referred to in the first paragraph died before 26 June 1986 and was 65 years of age or older at the time of his death, or if his age added to his years of service totalled 90 or more, sections 20, 24, 25 and 32 apply, in respect of the years that have entitled him to the pension credit under Division III of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers, to the spouse’s pension or, as the case may be, to the guaranteed benefit, according to the election made by him under section 18 of the said Act. In that case, sections 20, 24, 25 and 32 shall apply as though they had been in force on the date on which the spouse’s pension or, as the case may be, the guaranteed benefit became payable. The maximum amount provided by section 22 shall be computed as of the same date with respect to the benefits the person would have been entitled to receive.
1986, c. 44, s. 42.
43. Division I of Chapter V, except sections 19 and 23, and sections 31 to 36, apply to every person who has become entitled to a deferred annuity under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan before 26 June 1986, which has not become payable before that date, and to every person who, on 25 June 1986, is receiving a pension by reason of mental or physical disability and who has already availed himself of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1). In such cases, the increase provided by section 20 becomes payable from the person’s sixty-fifth birthday.
However, if a person referred to in the first paragraph has become entitled to a deferred annuity under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and if he meets, taking into account the years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided for in section 20 and taking into account his age when he ceased to participate in this plan, one of the criteria set out in section 19, Chapter V, except sections 28 to 30, applies and his benefits become payable from 26 June 1986. The amount of his benefits shall be established, with regard to his age, as of 26 June 1986.
1986, c. 44, s. 43; 1987, c. 47, s. 177; 1988, c. 82, s. 166.
44. A person who is receiving a pension under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan and who has already availed himself of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) is entitled to receive, instead of the benefits computed under the said Act and instead of the pension credits to which he is entitled under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), except pension credits to which he is entitled under sections 101, 113 and 158 of the said Act, the increase provided by section 20 of this Act. Sections 22, 24 to 26, 31 to 33 and 34.12 to 34.16 apply to that person. In that case, the increase provided by section 20 shall be computed as though the said section had been in force on the date on which the benefits computed under the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers became payable, but not later than 25 June 1986.
However, if the person referred to in the first paragraph is granted a pension credit pursuant to section 101, 113 or 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the pension credit shall continue to be paid, but section 89 and the first paragraph of section 94 of the said Act do not apply.
If the person referred to in the first paragraph died before 26 June 1986 and was 65 years of age or older at the time of his death or, where he was receiving a pension under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, if his age added to his years of service totalled 90 or more, sections 20, 24 to 26 and 32 apply, in respect of the years that have entitled him to the pension credit under Division III of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers, to the spouse’s pension or, as the case may be, to the guaranteed benefit, according to the election made by the person under section 18 of the said Act. In that case, sections 20, 24 to 26 and 32 shall apply as though they had been in force on the date on which the pension credit under Division III of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers became payable to that person. The maximum amount provided by section 22 shall be computed as of the same date with respect to the benefits the person would have received.
1986, c. 44, s. 44; 1990, c. 87, s. 10.
44.1. For the purposes of section 44, a person who is receiving a pension under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and who, taking into account the years and parts of a year giving entitlement to the increase provided by section 20 and the age at which he ceased to be employed, meets any of the criteria set out in section 19, is entitled to a pension computed in accordance with Division I of Chapter V instead of the pension he is presently receiving. The new pension shall be computed as though the said division had been in force on the date on which the pension he is receiving became payable to him.
The first paragraph applies in establishing the amount of the spouse’s pension referred to in sections 42 and 44 if it is paid under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
1987, c. 66, s. 4.
45. A person whose pension under the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan became payable before 26 June 1986 or a person who ceased to participate in that plan before that date but after he becomes eligible for a deferred annuity is or will be entitled to receive, if section 24 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) was applicable, instead of the amount computed under the said section 24, the amount computed in accordance with sections 39 and 41 as though they had been in force on the date on which the amount established under the said section 24 became or becomes payable.
If a person referred to in the first paragraph died before 26 June 1986 and was then receiving the amount computed in accordance with section 24 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers, the first paragraph applies to the spouse’s pension according to the election made by the person under subparagraph b or c of the first paragraph of section 18 of the said Act.
1986, c. 44, s. 45; 1987, c. 47, s. 178; 1988, c. 82, s. 167.
46. A person who attained 65 years of age before 26 June 1986 and who transferred his years or parts of a year of service credited under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan to the pension plan of a body with which an agreement has been entered into under section 158 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) is entitled to receive, if section 12 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) was applicable to him, instead of the pension credit under the said section 12, the amount computed in accordance with sections 40 and 41 of this Act as though they had been in force on the person’s sixty-fifth birthday.
If the person referred to in the first paragraph died before 26 June 1986 and was 65 years of age or older, the first paragraph applies to the amount payable to the spouse or, as the case may be, to the guaranteed benefit according to the election made by the person under section 18 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers.
1986, c. 44, s. 46.
47. For the purposes of computations under the second paragraph of section 42 and sections 44 to 46, the indexing provided for in section 25 shall be determined by indexing the initial amount according to the rate of indexation determined for each period under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan from the date on which the amount would have become payable.
In that case, the reduction prescribed in section 24 applies, if the payable pension is guaranteed under subparagraph a of the first paragraph of section 18 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1), from the month immediately following the pensioner’s sixty-fifth birthday, even if he died before that age.
1986, c. 44, s. 47.
48. The second paragraph of section 42 and sections 44 to 46 apply only if, on 26 June 1986 or, as regards section 45, on the date on which the amount becomes payable, the amount computed under those sections is greater than the amount that was payable on 25 June 1986 or, as the case may be, on the date on which it becomes payable under the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1). However, for the purposes of section 44.1, sections 42 and 44 apply only if the amount so computed increased by the amount of the new pension established under section 44.1 is greater than the amounts that were payable on 25 June 1986.
1986, c. 44, s. 48; 1987, c. 66, s. 5.
49. If the amount computed under the second paragraph of section 42 and under sections 44 and 46 increased, where such is the case, by the amount of the new pension established under section 44.1 is more advantageous within the meaning of section 48, the amount and the new pension are owing only in respect of instalments payable after 25 June 1986.
If the amount computed under section 45 is more advantageous, within the meaning of section 48, the amount is owing only from 26 June 1986 or, if it was not payable before that date, from the date it becomes payable. However, any amount owing from 26 June 1986 shall be payable only from the annual payment of June 1987.
Section 35 applies to benefits payable to any person or beneficiary contemplated in this chapter.
1986, c. 44, s. 49; 1987, c. 66, s. 6.
50. The persons contemplated in the first paragraph of each of sections 44, 45 and 46 who, on 25 June 1986, were receiving benefits under the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) in accordance with the election they had made under section 18 of the said Act may, notwithstanding section 48, elect to receive the amount computed under those sections or the benefits they were receiving on 25 June 1986.
If a person fails to notify his election to the Commission before 1 January 1988, section 48 applies.
Where a person elects to receive the amount computed under section 44, 45 or 46, the election he had made under section 18 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers is cancelled and section 32 of this Act applies to that amount.
1986, c. 44, s. 50; 1987, c. 66, s. 7; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP).
51. The provisions relating to a pensioner’s return to work under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan apply, adapted as required, to a person referred to in section 44 or, as the case may be, in section 45.
Chapter III, Divisions I and III of Chapter IV and Chapter V apply to a person contemplated in this chapter who has become entitled to a deferred annuity under any of the pension plans referred to in the first paragraph who holds an employment contemplated in the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) and whose deferred annuity is not yet payable. The said provisions also apply to a person referred to in section 46.
1986, c. 44, s. 51; 1987, c. 47, s. 179; 1987, c. 107, s. 160; 1988, c. 82, s. 168; 1990, c. 87, s. 11; 2001, c. 31, s. 232; 2007, c. 43, s. 12.
52. The Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1) ceases to have effect from 26 June 1986 except sections 17 and 19 to 21, which continue to apply in all cases where the amount payable under the said Act is more advantageous within the meaning of section 48 of this Act and in all cases where the person has elected to receive, under section 50 of this Act, the benefits he was receiving on 25 June 1986. In such cases, if the person made an election under section 18 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers, sections 20 and 21 of the said Act continue to apply in accordance with the method elected under the said section 18. In cases where the person who made an election under the said section 18 died before 26 June 1986, the amount payable to the spouse or, where such is the case, to the beneficiary which is the most advantageous amount within the meaning of section 48 of this Act shall continue to be paid according to the method elected under section 18 of the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, a person who has already availed himself of the said Act may apply for the redemption of other years and parts of years of service that could have been redeemed under the said Act, except where those years and parts of years have been the subject, before 26 June 1986, of a decision of the Commission or, depending on the date, of a decision of the Comité de retraite or any of its subcommittees, following an application for reexamination. That person must redeem such years and parts of a year in accordance with the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers as though he had redeemed them at the time he availed himself of the said Act. Any amount exigible is increased by 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 comprised between 1 July of the year in which he availed himself of the said Act and the date of the redemption proposal made by the Commission.
The person who avails himself of the second paragraph shall be entitled to the adjustment of benefits afforded by the years and parts of years so redeemed, from, as the case may be, the latest of the following dates:
(1)  26 June 1986;
(2)  the date on which the benefits would become payable;
(3)  the date preceding by not more than 12 months the date of receipt of his application.
1986, c. 44, s. 52; 1987, c. 66, s. 8; 1990, c. 87, s. 12.

TRANSFER AND INVESTMENT OF FUNDS
53. All sums paid to the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec pursuant to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) before 26 June 1986 in respect of any person contemplated in this Act shall be transferred to the Consolidated Revenue Fund, after deduction of the amount of any benefit paid or payable before 26 June 1986, having regard to the sums so transferred.
However, the sums transferred to the Commission pursuant to section 102 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan and the contributory amounts paid by the employer in accordance with section 31 of the said Act shall not be transferred as provided in the first paragraph.
1986, c. 44, s. 53; 1987, c. 107, s. 161.
54. All sums paid after 25 June 1986 in respect of any person contemplated in this Act other than sums transferred to Retraite Québec pursuant to section 102 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) and the contributory amounts paid by the employer in accordance with section 31 of the said Act or, as the case may be, with section 44 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) shall be deposited with the Consolidated Revenue Fund. Sections 127 to 129 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan apply to sums transferred to Retraite Québec pursuant to section 102 thereof, to the contributory amounts paid by the employer and to the contributions of employees. However, the contributions of employees shall be transferred annually to the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
1986, c. 44, s. 54; 1987, c. 107, s. 162; 1989, c. 73, s. 2; 2001, c. 31, s. 233; 2015, c. 27, s. 1; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.

DIVISION III
ACTUARIAL VALUATION
57. At least once every three years, Retraite Québec shall cause an actuarial valuation of this plan to be made by the actuaries it designates. However, the rate of contribution applicable under this plan is the rate provided for in section 29 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or the rate determined, where such is the case, in respect of the latter plan by the Government pursuant to section 177 of the said Act.
1986, c. 44, s. 57; 1987, c. 47, s. 180; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
CHAPTER IX
MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
58. All sums paid or refunded under this Act are inalienable and unseizable.
All benefits or refunds payable with respect to a person contemplated in this Act, pursuant to the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan (chapter R-11), the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan (chapter R-12), the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1) and the Act respecting pension coverage for certain teachers (chapter P-32.1), if, in the latter case, the benefits are more advantageous within the meaning of section 48, shall become benefits or refunds payable under the retirement plan established under this Act.
1986, c. 44, s. 58; 2001, c. 31, s. 234.
59. No person may claim a benefit or advantage under this Act unless he has applied therefor to the Commission, except in cases where section 48 applies.
Even in the absence of an application for payment, any benefit payable under this Act shall be paid on or before 31 December of the year in which the person 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.
Every application relating to the application of this Act received by the Commission between 20 November 1985 and 26 June 1986 is deemed to have been received on the latter date.
1986, c. 44, s. 59; 1997, c. 50, s. 10.
59.1. Where an application for redemption of years or parts of a year is made to Retraite Québec under this plan, Retraite Québec shall send the person 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 person 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 person or by operation of law. Where payment is exigible by instalments and the person 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 person 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 or counted 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 its decision is quashed 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. 13; 1991, c. 77, s. 7; 1992, c. 67, s. 11; 1993, c. 41, s. 4; 1993, c. 74, s. 5; 1994, c. 20, s. 5; 2004, c. 39, s. 75; 2007, c. 43, s. 13; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
59.1.1. Notwithstanding section 59.1, an employee who makes an application for reexamination 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, as the case may be, has been sent, Retraite Québec shall send a notice to the employee which, as of the date of the redemption proposal, repeats or modifies that proposal, and section 59.1 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 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. 6; 2002, c. 30, s. 4; 2004, c. 39, s. 76; 2006, c. 49, s. 126; 2015, c. 20, s. 61.
59.2. Despite any inconsistent provisions in this Act or the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), 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 determine by regulation 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 a year redeemed, and the conditions governing the application of those limits, rules and procedures.
1992, c. 67, s. 12; 2004, c. 39, s. 77.
59.3. The periods of absence of an employee occurring after 31 December 1991 which may be credited under this plan, for each type of absence and in total, are determined by regulation.
1992, c. 67, s. 12.
60. Sections 151 and 152 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) apply to any benefit payable under this Act, except that in respect of any application received before 1 January 1987
(1)  the word “sixty-first” shall be replaced by the words “one hundred and eighty-first”;
(2)  the word “sixtieth” shall be replaced by the words “one hundred and eightieth”.
1986, c. 44, s. 60.
61. The Government may, by order, amend Schedule I. In no case may the order have effect more than twelve months before it is issued.
1986, c. 44, s. 61.
61.1. A person who ceases to be a person to whom this plan is applicable for any period during which he is not in service in pensionable employment and who ceases to participate before 1 January 1989 is, notwithstanding section 4.1, deemed to have ceased to participate on the day he ceased to be a person to whom this plan is applicable.
1988, c. 82, s. 169.
62. The provisions of this Act apply notwithstanding the provisions of section 10 of the Charter of human rights and freedoms (chapter C-12).
The provisions of this Act have effect despite section 15 of the Constitution Act, 1982 (Schedule B to the Canada Act, chapter 11 in the 1982 volume of the Acts of the Parliament of the United Kingdom).
1986, c. 44, s. 62; 1991, c. 14, s. 1; 1996, c. 10, s. 5; 2001, c. 31, s. 235; 2004, c. 39, s. 78; 2009, c. 56, s. 2; 2014, c. 11, s. 1.
63. The Government shall designate the minister responsible for the administration of this Act.
1986, c. 44, s. 63.
The Minister Responsible for Government Administration and Chair of the Conseil du trésor is responsible for the administration of this Act. Order in Council 1279-2018 dated 18 October 2018, (2018) 150 G.O. 2 (French), 7379.
