 Sections 53, 54 and 55 of the Act apply, with such modifications as the circumstances require, to applications for pre-retirement benefit under these Regulations.

 Where an employee submits an application for pre-retirement benefit on a day later than the day on which he was qualified to make the application and shows good cause for the delay, the application may, in the manner and to the extent prescribed by section 39 of the Unemployment Insurance Regulations be regarded as having been submitted on a day earlier than the day on which it was submitted.

  •  (1) The Commission shall consider all applications submitted to it under these Regulations, and

    • (a) if it is of the opinion that a pre-retirement benefit period has been established, it shall so declare; or

    • (b) if it is of the opinion that a pre-retirement benefit period has not been established, it shall

      • (i) declare that a pre-retirement benefit period has not been established and state which of the conditions or requirements of these Regulations have not been complied with, or

      • (ii) refer the application, if practicable, within 14 days from the day on which the application was submitted to it, to a board of referees for its decision.

  • (2) Notwithstanding that a pre-retirement benefit period has been established, if the Commission is not satisfied that an employee has fulfilled all the other conditions or requirements for pre-retirement benefit or if it is of the opinion that the employee is or was disqualified or disentitled from receiving pre-retirement benefit it shall

    • (a) declare the employee to be disqualified or disentitled from receiving benefit for such days as it may determine, and state

      • (i) the grounds on which the employee is disqualified or disentitled, or

      • (ii) the conditions or requirements that he does not fulfil; or

    • (b) refer the application, if practicable, within 14 days from the day on which the application was submitted to it, to a board of referees for its decision.

  • (3) Where an employee has been declared disqualified or disentitled under paragraph (2)(a) for any day or days, there shall be deducted from the pre-retirement benefit otherwise payable to him in respect of the week in which such day or days fall, an amount equal to 1/5 of the product obtained by multiplying the total number of such days in the week by the weekly pre-retirement benefit of that employee, but if the amount so calculated is not a multiple of $1, the amount shall be rounded to the nearest dollar and $0.50 shall be rounded to a full dollar.

  • (4) Subsection (3) applies only in respect of days of disqualification or disentitlement falling on or after January 11, 1974.
