292. Articles 2540 to 2555 of the Civil Code of Lower Canada, adapted as required, apply to the revocation of the designation of any person who, on 31 December 1989, is a beneficiary designated by a member.
A member may, however, where the beneficiary is his spouse and the designation has been made without a stipulation as to the revocability or irrevocability of the designation, render the designation revocable by way of a writing to that effect transmitted to the pension committee or to the insurer before 1 January 1992. If the member dies before that date and had not transmitted such a writing, the designation of his spouse is held to be revocable.
Within 12 months after 31 December 1989, the pension committee or the insurer shall transmit a copy of this section to every member to whom the second paragraph applies.
