98.1. For each calendar year from 1 January 1988, the days and parts of a day that are not credited to an employee who holds pensionable employment under the plan for at least one day during that calendar year shall be considered solely for the purposes of eligibility for a pension.
However, during the year in which the employee begins to participate in the plan, the days comprised between 1 January and the first day on which the employee holds pensionable employment shall not be considered for the purposes of eligibility. In addition, during the year in which the employee ceases to participate in the plan, the days comprised between the day on which the employee’s participation ceases and 31 December shall not be considered.
Subject to section 98, the first and second paragraphs also apply to an employee who did not have days and parts of a day of absence without pay credited under section 28.
The days and parts of a day that are not credited to an employee who, during the year 1987 or a subsequent year, held pensionable employment under the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan for a least one day during the year shall also be considered solely for purposes of eligibility for a pension if they were not otherwise considered under this plan.
