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 period of LWOP in excess of the first three months 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 other than for the first three months.

To make an election NOT to count the period of LWOP in excess of the first three months as pensionable service, you must sign and forward this form to the Public Service Pension Centre no later than three months following your return to work.

This election is IRREVOCABLE

If you do not exercise this option within three months of returning to work, deficiencies in pension contributions will be recovered for your entire period of leave without pay.

Please inform your personnel office if you were employed in the public service while you were on leave without pay.

If you are in a Dual Employment situation (working in a term position, of 12 or more hours a week, while on LWOP from your substantive position), at the end of every term position you will have the option not to count the LWOP in excess of the first three months as pensionable service by completing this form. A separate form is required at the end of each term position.
