74.1. For each calendar year from 1 January 1987, the days and parts of a day that are not credited to an employee who holds pensionable employment under the plan for at least one day during that calendar year shall be considered solely for purposes of eligibility for a pension.
However, during the year in which the employee begins to participate in the plan, the days comprised between 1 January and the first day on which the employee holds pensionable employment shall not be considered for the purposes of eligibility. Moreover, during the year in which the employee ceases to participate in the plan, the days comprised between the last day on which the employee holds pensionable employment and 31 December shall not be considered, but where the employee ceases to participate in the plan when the employee is not holding pensionable employment, the days, if any, shall be considered until the date on which Retraite Québec receives an application for the redemption of service by virtue of which the employee had years and parts of a year of service credited or counted under the plan or until the employee becomes eligible for a pension.
Subject to section 74, the first and second paragraphs also apply to an employee to whom the days and parts of a day during which the employee was absent without pay were not credited pursuant to section 24.
The days and parts of a day that are not credited to an employee who, during the year 1988 or a subsequent year, held pensionable employment under the Pension Plan of Peace Officers in Correctional Services for at least one day per year shall also be considered solely for the purposes of eligibility for a pension, if they have not been otherwise considered under this plan.
This section does not apply for the purposes of Division III of Chapter IV of this Title.
