220.127.116.11. If, during years or parts of a year of service completed, a person was an employee of an employer designated in Schedule I or II and was not excluded from this plan under paragraph 4 of section 1 of the Regulation under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10, r. 2), the person may be credited, for pension purposes, with such years or parts of a year up to a maximum of 18 years, except the years or parts of a year during which the employee participated in a pension plan. However, the years or parts of a year of service completed prior to the date that is three years before the date of receipt of the application for redemption may be credited up to a maximum of 15 years.
To be credited with all or part of that service, the person is required to pay to Retraite Québec the amount determined under the tariff established by regulation, on the basis of the pensionable salary at the time of receipt of the person’s application for redemption, 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 annual remuneration. The tariff may vary according to the person’s age, the year of service covered by the redemption and the date of receipt of the application. The regulation may prescribe the terms and conditions governing the application of the tariff. If the person applies to have only part of that service credited, the most recent service is credited first.
The application for redemption must be accompanied by a copy of a decision of a competent authority or an out-of-court settlement following a request made under section 39 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27) showing that, during the years or parts of a year completed, the person was an employee of an employer designated in Schedule I or II or was not excluded from this plan under paragraph 4 of section 1 of the Regulation under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan.
To the extent that the application for redemption is accompanied by a document other than a decision or out-of-court settlement referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 3.1.1, the person must be participating in the plan on the date of receipt of the application for redemption.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, any period during which the person was an employee entitled to salary insurance benefits or an employee on maternity leave under the provisions concerning parental leave that form part of her conditions of employment is counted as a period of service.
For the purposes of the second paragraph, the pensionable salary of a person who, at the time of the receipt of his or her application for redemption, is not participating in this plan is established by regulation.
