This form is for completion by a participant under the Reserve Force Pension Plan. For your period of leave without pay (LWOP) that commenced or will commence on the date indicated below, you have the option of NOT counting the entire period of LWOP as pensionable service.

If you elect NOT to count this period of LWOP, you will not be credited with the service and accordingly, you will not be required to pay deficiencies in pension contributions for your period of LWOP.

To make an election NOT to count the period of LWOP as pensionable service, you must sign and forward this form to the Government of Canada Pension Centre at any point before the contributions for the LWOP period have been fully paid back.

This election is irrevocable

If you do not exercise this option prior to paying back in full the LWOP contribution deficiencies, upon returning to work, deficiencies in pension contributions will be recovered for your entire period of leave without pay.
