55.1. For the purposes of this Act, an officer shall participate in a pension plan from the first day he holds pensionable employment.
An officer shall participate in a plan as long as he remains an officer within the meaning of the plan. However, for the purposes of eligibility for and computation of benefits under this plan, where an officer ceases to be an officer within the meaning of this plan for any period during which he is not in service in pensionable employment and is not entitled to a pension by reason of total and permanent disability under subparagraph 3 of the first paragraph of section 56, he is deemed to have ceased to participate,
(1) if he is not entitled to a pension, on his last day of service in pensionable employment or, as the case may be, on the date Retraite Québec received an application for redemption whereby years and parts of a year of service have been credited or transferred to the plan if such date is subsequent to the last day referred to above;
(2) if he is entitled to a pension, on the first day he became entitled to the pension, from the day or date that would have been considered if paragraph 1 had applied.
