99.9.1. This subdivision applies to every officer, except a seasonal or casual officer, who has not already availed himself of it and who, within the scope of an agreement with his employer, agrees to a reduction of his working time for a period of one to five years, providing he retires at the end of that period. However, his working time may not be less than 40% of the regular service of a full-time officer in such employment.
Before he may avail himself of this subdivision, the officer shall ascertain from Retraite Québec that he is likely to be eligible for a pension on the date proposed for the end of the agreement. For this purpose, Retraite Québec shall estimate the years or parts of a year of service credited to the officer at the end of the agreement. Any change to the date fixed for the beginning or the end of the agreement must be accepted by Retraite Québec before being made.
However, if at the end of the agreement the number of years or parts of a year of service credited to the officer is less than the number estimated by Retraite Québec, or if at the end of the agreement the officer is not eligible for his pension, or if the agreement is suspended due to circumstances determined by regulation, the agreement is extended, even where this causes the period to exceed five years, until the date on which the number of years or parts of a year of service credited to the officer is equal to the estimate made by Retraite Québec in the first case and, in the other cases, until the date on which the officer becomes eligible for his pension.
