114. Within 30 days of a written request therefor, the pension committee shall permit an employee eligible for membership or a member or beneficiary to examine, without charge, during usual working hours, the text of the pension plan or any other document prescribed by regulation. The pension committee shall, subject to the same conditions, permit a member or beneficiary to examine the terms of the plan as they stood on any date included in the period during which the employee concerned was an active member.
The examination shall take place at the place where the plan is administered; however, where the employer has one or several establishments located within 150 km of an active member’s place of employment, the member may examine the terms of the plan at that establishment or, where the employer has more than one establishment, at the establishment designated by the pension committee.
Where a copy of a document for which an examination request was made is sent without charge, within 30 days of the request, to the person who made the request, the pension committee is dispensed from the obligation to permit examination of the document.
