28. Benefits become payable to the person entitled thereto from the day that person retires. The person is presumed to retire on the day after the day on which he ceases to participate in the plan. However, where the person continues to hold pensionable employment after 30 December of the year in which he attains 69 years of age, the day after the day on which the employee ceases to hold such an employment is the day on which he retires. The pension referred to in the fourth paragraph of section 19 is payable from the time the person begins to receive the retirement pension acquired as a Member of the National Assembly if that person became a Member before 1 January 1992. However, the increase provided for in section 20 and the pension credits, if any, are payable from the sixty-fifth birthday of the person.
