144. All sums paid or refunded under this plan are inalienable and unseizable. To that end, a person’s entitlements under this plan may not be assigned, encumbered, anticipated, given as security or waived. The fact of reducing the benefits for the purpose of avoiding the revocation of registration of the plan does not constitute a waiver.
The first paragraph does not operate to prevent, to the extent that the plan provides for it, an assignment
(1) under an order, a judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, or a written agreement on or after the breakdown of a marriage or civil union or of a situation similar to a conjugal relationship between an employee and the employee’s spouse or former spouse, in settlement of rights arising out of the marriage or civil union or situation;
(2) made by the legal representative of a deceased employee, in settlement of a succession.
