CONTRIBUTORS RE-ENGAGED AS AGENTS OR EMPLOYED IN THE PUBLIC SERVICE

 If a contributor who is entitled to an annuity under section 9 is re-engaged as an agent or becomes employed in the Public Service, whatever right or claim he may have under these Regulations to payment of the said annuity shall, with respect to the period during which he continues to be so engaged as an agent or employed in the Public Service, be suspended until such time as he ceases to be so engaged or employed.

  •  (1) Subject to the Public Service Superannuation Act, where a contributor who ceases to be engaged as an agent to become employed in the Public Service elects to count his service as an agent, or any portion thereof, as service in pensionable employment for purposes of the Public Service Superannuation Act, the Minister of Finance may transfer into the Superannuation Account to the credit of the contributor

    • (a) an amount equal to the total amount paid into the Annuities Agents Pension Account in respect of that contributor, except any portion thereof so paid by Her Majesty in right of Canada;

    • (b) such amount paid into the Annuities Agents Pension Account in respect of that contributor by Her Majesty in right of Canada as the Minister of Finance determines; and

    • (c) such amount representing interest as the Minister of Finance determines.

  • (2) Upon the Minister of Finance making a transfer in accordance with subsection (1), the contributor in respect of whom the transfer is made ceases to be entitled to any other benefit under these Regulations.

CONTRIBUTOR CONVICTED OF AN INDICTABLE OFFENCE

 Where a contributor is convicted of an indictable offence committed by him while engaged as an agent, if the Treasury Board is of the opinion that the commission of the offence by the contributor constituted misconduct in office, any annuity payable under these Regulations to or in respect of the contributor shall be reduced by such amount as the Treasury Board, in its discretion, considers appropriate.

PROOF OF AGE, DEATH OR MARITAL STATUS

  •  (1) For the purposes of these Regulations the age, death or marital status of a contributor or of the widow of a contributor shall be proved by forwarding to the Minister such evidence of age, death or marital status as the Minister, from time to time, considers appropriate.

  • (2) The Minister, in any case in which he considers it necessary or advisable in connection with the administration of these Regulations, may require any person to submit to him a statutory declaration setting out the facts that the Minister considers relevant in that case.

  • (3) Notwithstanding anything in these Regulations, no benefits shall be paid under these Regulations until the evidence required by the Minister in accordance with subsections (1) and (2) has been received by him.
