20. A person referred to in paragraph 1, 2 or 4 of section 1 who receives benefits under a mandatory supplementary salary insurance plan pursuant to the applicable conditions of employment shall continue to be a member of this plan in respect of the employment that gives entitlement to the benefits even if the employer has terminated the person’s employment. The person shall continue to be a member as long as the benefits are being received or would have been received had it not been for the reduction applied to them following payment of a salary as a result of a career reorientation, demotion or new classification, payment of a disability benefit under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), payment of an income replacement indemnity under the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases (chapter A-3.001) or the Automobile Insurance Act (chapter A-25), or payment of an employment income, until the person becomes entitled to a pension under subparagraph 2 or 3 of the first paragraph of section 44 or attains 65 years of age, whichever comes first.
The exemption from contributions provided for in section 18 of this Act 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 an employee who receives benefits under a mandatory basic long-term salary insurance plan applicable to management personnel in the public and parapublic sectors.
