R-9.3, r. 2 - Regulation respecting the partition and assignment of benefits accrued under the Pension Plan of Elected Municipal Officers

7. In this section, “CIA Standards” refer to the standards of practice entitled “Practice-Specific Standards for Pension Plans -3800 Pension Commuted Values” of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, in force since 1 February 2005 and periodically revised.
The actuarial value of the benefits is determined by using the “distribution of benefits” method and corresponds to the sum of 80% of the actuarial value determined for a male and of 20% of the actuarial value determined for a female.
The actuarial value is also determined by using the following actuarial assumptions:
(1)  mortality rates:
The mortality rates are those determined in accordance with the CIA Standards.
(2)  interest rates:
(a)  the interest rates for fully-indexed benefits or non-indexed benefits are those determined in accordance with the CIA Standards;
(b)  the interest rates for partially-indexed benefits are determined according to the following formula:
((1 + interest rate for a non-indexed benefit)/(1 + indexing rate for a partially-indexed benefit)) - 1
The result must be adjusted in accordance with the CIA Standards.
(3)  indexing rate:
(a)  for a fully-indexed benefit according to the rate of increase in the Pension Index, the indexing rate is computed in the manner described in the CIA standards;
(b)  for a benefit indexed according to the excess of the rate of increase in the Pension Index “PI” over 3%, the indexing rate corresponds to the excess of the indexing rate computed in the manner provided for in subparagraph a over 3%.
In order to take into account the inflation rate variations, the following additions are made to the results of effective indexing formulas for actuarial value computation purposes:
