83. If an officer or employee resign or be dismissed, or if his office be abolished or if he be compelled, through physical or mental infirmity, to leave the service before the time when a pension could be granted to him, the sums which have been deducted from his salary shall be returned to him, without interest.
If the officer or employee contemplated in the first paragraph is again employed by a body contemplated in this division within 180 days from the date his employment was terminated and if he has not been reimbursed the sums deducted from his salary, he may elect to be reimbursed the said sums or to be credited with the service he has accumulated.
If the functionary or employee contemplated in the first paragraph subsequently becomes a member, he is entitled to a pension for the years during which he was a functionary or employee, provided he acquires the right to a member’s pension; such pension shall be deferred until he begins to receive a pension under the Legislature Act (chapter L-1) provided he remits his contributions if they have been reimbursed to him.
This section applies to every member of the National Assembly of Québec who has or will have been governed by the Act respecting the Civil Service Superannuation Plan or who has or will have been a teacher within the meaning of the Act respecting the Teachers Pension Plan.
If he dies before he is granted a pension and a pension provided for in sections 77 and 78 is not payable, the deductions from his salary shall be returned to his legal representatives.
