14. From the day payment of the pension of a pensioner ceases by reason of death, or, as the case may be, from the day of the death of a person who is eligible for a pension or deferred pension under the second paragraph of section 15, the spouse is entitled to receive as pension 60% of the total pension the pensioner was receiving with the exception of, as the case may be, the amount provided for in section 105 of the Act or, as the case may be, would have otherwise been entitled to receive or would have been entitled to receive under the provisions of this Order in Council and, where applicable, under the plan, excluding the amount provided for in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 8, if applicable. The reduction provided for, for the purpose of coordinating the pension with the pension paid under the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9), applies in respect of the years or parts of a year of service credited under the former pension plan. Where section 28 applies, the spouse’s pension is established without counting the years or parts of a year of service credited under the former pension plan.
If a person to whom this Order in Council applies dies without a spouse entitled to the benefits provided for in the first paragraph while the person is a pensioner or eligible for a pension or deferred pension under the second paragraph of section 15 and before the pension has been paid to the person for at least 10 years, the person’s successors are entitled to receive payment of the current value of the total pension for the period comprised between the first day of the month following the person’s death and the day on which the 10-year period expires. The current value is established in accordance with the assumptions provided for in Schedule IV. Where section 28 applies, the current value is established without taking into account the current value of the pension resulting from the years or parts of a year of service credited under the former pension plan.
