164. For the purposes of partition and assignment, the benefits accrued under this plan shall be established according to the rules fixed by regulation, which may differ from the rules otherwise applicable under this Act. The benefits shall be established and assessed in accordance with the actuarial rules, assumptions and methods determined by the regulation, which may vary according to the nature of the benefits established.
The benefits shall be established and assessed on the date on which the spouses ceased living together, on the date of institution of the proceedings or on the date determined in the notarized transaction settling the consequences of the dissolution of the civil union, as the case may be. If, on that date, an employee does not qualify for membership in this plan pursuant to section 10, the employee’s benefits shall be established and assessed under this chapter but according to the rules prescribed by Division II of the Regulation respecting the partition and assignment of benefits accrued under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan made by Order in Council 351-91 (1991, G.O. 2, 1307).
