4.1. For the purposes of this plan, a person shall participate in a pension plan from his first day of service in pensionable employment.
The person shall participate in a plan as long as he remains a person to whom the plan is applicable. However, for the purposes of eligibility for and computation of benefits under this plan, where the person ceases to be a person to whom this plan is applicable for any period during which he is not in service in pensionable employment, that person is deemed to have ceased to participate,
(1) if he is not entitled to a pension, on his last day of service in pensionable employment or, as the case may be, on the date Retraite Québec received an application for redemption whereby years and parts of a year of service have been credited or transferred to the plan if such date is subsequent to the last day referred to above;
(2) if he is entitled to a pension, on the first day he became entitled to the pension, from the day or date which would have been considered if paragraph 1 had applied.
Participation in this plan shall cease, at the latest, on 30 December of the year in which the person attains 69 years of age.
