60. The days and parts of a day of a period during which an officer receives salary insurance benefits, or during which he would receive such benefits were it not for the waiting period prescribed by the salary insurance plan or were he not receiving a disability benefit under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9) or an income replacement indemnity under the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases (chapter A-3.001), the Automobile Insurance Act (chapter A-25), the Act to promote good citizenship (chapter C-20), the Crime Victims Compensation Act (chapter I-6) or under any other Act, other than an Act of Québec, having the same effect, shall be credited, without contributions, up to two years of service.
However, the limit of two years of service prescribed in the first paragraph shall not apply in the case of a compulsory salary insurance plan in force on 31 December 1989 which, on that date, provides, in favour of certain groups of officers covered by this plan, benefits payable up to the age of 65 years or up to the age of retirement providing the officer belongs to one of those groups and the group’s participation in the salary insurance plan is maintained.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the salary insurance plan so provides, the insurer shall pay the contributions which would have been paid by the officer, and they shall be credited to the account of the officer.
The days and parts of a day during which a female officer receives the income replacement indemnity provided for in section 36 of the Act respecting occupational health and safety (chapter S-2.1) by reason of the exercise of a right granted under sections 40, 41 and 46 of the said Act, are credited with exemption from contributions.
