Determination of Transfer Value

[SOR/2012-124, s. 31]

  • (2) In the case of a lump sum amount referred to in subsection (1) that is less than the amount of a return of contributions that would be payable on valuation day if the contributor were eligible to receive a return of contributions, the transfer value to which the contributor is entitled is a lump sum amount equal to the amount of that return of contributions.

  • SOR/2003-232, s. 2;
  • SOR/2012-124, s. 31.

 The determination of the actuarial present value of the accrued pension benefits referred to in subsection 61(1) is subject to the following rules:

  • (b) the possibility that the contributor could receive an annual allowance is to be excluded.

  • SOR/2003-232, s. 2.

    • (a) the mortality rates for contributors and survivors, including mortality projection factors, shall be those used in the preparation of the most recent actuarial valuation report relating to the pension plan established under the Act;

    • (b) the interest rates are the interest rates for fully indexed pensions — adjusted by the interest rates for unindexed pensions to take into account Part III of the Act — determined in accordance with the section entitled “Pension Commuted Values” of the Standards of Practice — Practice-Specific Standards for Pension Plans, published by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, as amended from time to time;

    • (c) the probability that a contributor will have a survivor shall be based on the rates regarding the average age and eligibility status of survivors at the death of a contributor used in the preparation of the most recent actuarial valuation report relating to the pension plan established under the Act;

    • (d) the probability that a contributor will be survived by children shall be based on the rates regarding the assumed number, average age and eligibility status of children at the death of a contributor used in the preparation of the most recent actuarial valuation report relating to the pension plan established under the Act; and

    • (e) the probability that a contributor will become entitled to a benefit by reason of disability shall be based on the disability incidence rates used in the preparation of the most recent actuarial valuation report relating to the pension plan established under the Act, taking into account the probability set out in that report, in the case of a compulsory retirement from the Force due to disability, that there would be immediate eligibility for Canada Pension Plan or Quebec Pension Plan disability benefits.

  • (2) The actuarial valuation report referred to in paragraphs (1)(a) and (c) to (e) is the actuarial valuation report most recently laid before Parliament in accordance with section 30 of the Act before valuation day or, if that report was laid before Parliament in the month in which valuation day occurs or in the preceding month, the report that was laid before Parliament immediately previous to that report.

  • SOR/2003-232, s. 2;
  • SOR/2012-124, s. 24.

Reduction

  • (b) any period of service in respect of which the amount referred to in a demand for funds, made to an eligible employer in respect of an employee in accordance with an agreement referred to in subsection 24.1(2) of the Act, has not been paid in total by an employer, is

    • (i) if the period includes only full-time service, counted, beginning with the part that is most recent in point of time, in the same proportion as the amount paid by the employer bears to the amount referred to in the demand for funds, or

    • (ii) if the period includes both full-time service and part-time service, converted to full-time service and costed as a period of full-time service, with the counted part being the most recent in point of time; and

  • (c) if the pension benefits that have accrued in respect of the period of service were subject to a division under a pension plan that was subject to the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985 or an equivalent provincial Act, only the part of the period of service that corresponds to the portion of the benefits that remain accrued to the employee is, after confirmation of the division by the eligible employer, counted and the total period of service is taken into account in determining eligibility for a benefit.

  • SOR/2012-124, s. 29.

 For the purposes of paragraph 10(4)(b) of the Act, the annual rate of pay that the contributor is deemed to have received during a period of service that is counted as a period of pensionable service under clause 6(a)(ii)(C) of the Act is determined in accordance with section 9.095, except that the valuation day is the one that is set out in the agreement referred to in subsection 24.1(2) of the Act.
