R-15.1 - Supplemental Pension Plans Act

Full text
67.5. A pension plan which, without being a defined contribution plan, includes provisions identical to those of that type of plan, and a plan referred to in paragraph 2 or 3 of section 116 may provide that a benefit other than a pension be paid, on application, to a member at least 55 years of age but under 65 years of age who is employed by an employer party to the plan with whom the active member makes an agreement to that effect.
The details of the benefit are set under the agreement, with the proviso that the annual amount of the benefit may not exceed 60% of the ceiling on the life income the member could receive under a replacement pension purchased under section 92. That amount is established at the beginning of the year during which payment of the benefit begins, based on the amounts credited to the member at that date and the age of the member at the end of the preceding year. The amount must be redetermined at the beginning of each year. Neither the agreement nor, despite the second paragraph of section 5, the plan may contain provisions that are more advantageous than those contained in this section.
In case of conflict, the details set out in the agreement prevail over those set out in the plan.
The value of the benefits to which the member is entitled, established on the date the benefit is paid, is reduced by the amount of that benefit.
