35. A person referred to in the first paragraph of section 34 who, under the person’s salary insurance plan provided for in his or her conditions of employment, is entitled to salary insurance benefits for a maximum period of two years of service, shall continue to be a member of the plan even if the person’s employer has terminated his or her employment, during the year following the last day of that two-year period, if on that day the person is a disabled person within the meaning of his or her salary insurance plan.
During that year, the service credited to the person, without contributions, is the service that would have been credited to the person if the person had held such employment, and his or her pensionable salary is the salary he or she would have received.
However, the service credited to a person who dies, resigns or retires during the year following the two-year period referred to in the first paragraph shall be reduced by the period comprised between the date of the event and the end of that year. The service credited shall also be reduced by the period comprised between the date on which a person is entitled, following an application therefor, to the amount referred to in section 80 or 88 and the end of that year.
The service credited under this section to a person who returns to pensionable employment during that period is reduced by the period comprised between the first day on which the person holds such employment and the end of the year.
