17.2. A person who receives benefits under a mandatory supplementary salary insurance plan pursuant to the applicable conditions of employment shall continue to participate in this plan even if the employer has terminated the person’s employment. The person shall continue to participate as long as he or she receives benefits or until he or she becomes entitled to a pension under subparagraph 2 or 3 of the first paragraph of section 44 or until the person attains 65 years of age, whichever occurs first.
The exemption from contributions provided for in section 17 applies and, thereafter, the insurer shall pay an amount equal to 185.19 % of the contribution referred to in the first paragraph of section 42 and 100 % of the contribution referred to in the second paragraph of that section.
The first and second paragraphs do not apply to a person who receives benefits under a mandatory basic long-term salary insurance plan applicable to management personnel in the public and parapublic sectors.
