154. Notwithstanding section 153, a pensioner may elect not to resume membership in this plan while holding or upon returning to pensionable employment under the first paragraph of section 153. The pensioner’s pension and the benefits referred to in subparagraphs 7 and 8 of the first paragraph of section 97 shall cease to be paid for a period corresponding to the service that would have otherwise been credited to the pensioner while the pensioner holds or has returned to such employment, had the election not been made.
An election not to resume membership in this plan applies from the date on which the Commission receives notice in writing to that effect. However, the election made by an employee who did not have years or parts of a year of service credited or counted under the plan or who did not have years or parts of a year of service counted under section 3.2 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10), since the first day on which the employee held his or her last pensionable employment under the plan shall apply from that day.
However, a pensioner who, before 1 January 1983, held pensionable employment under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan, the Teachers Pension Plan or the Civil Service Superannuation Plan, except where the pensioner has received or is entitled only to a refund of contributions for the period prior to that date, and who holds or has returned to pensionable employment referred to in the first paragraph of section 153 and has elected not to resume membership in this plan may continue, until the pensioner attains 65 years of age, to receive his or her pension and the benefits referred to in the first paragraph and receive his or her salary.
