(1) for that part attributable to service prior to 1 July 1982, by the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act;
(2) for that part attributable to service subsequent to 30 June 1982 but prior to 1 January 2000, by the excess of the rate of the increase of the Pension Index over 3%;
(3) for that part attributable to service subsequent to 31 December 1999, by the formula provided for in subparagraph 2 of this paragraph or by one-half of the rate of increase of the Pension Index, according to the formula which is the most advantageous.
Where the number of years of service credited exceeds the number of years of service used in computing the pension, subparagraphs 1 to 3 of the first paragraph are applied in the order which is the most advantageous for the pensioner.
The deferred annuity is, at the same time, indexed annually at the rate of increase of the Pension Index determined by the said Act from 1 January following the date on which the employee ceased to be a member of the plan to 1 January of the year in which he reached 65 years of age. From 1 January following the date on which he reached 65 years of age, the deferred annuity is indexed in the manner set out in the first paragraph.
