"the member") who, at the time of my signing this waiver, is alive.  
The member earned benefits under the Local Authorities Pension Plan.  
The money respecting those benefits remains in that pension plan.
Being the member's "pension partner" means that
	(a)	I am married to the member and have not been living 
separate and apart from him or her for 3 or more consecutive 
years, or
	(b)	if paragraph (a) above does not apply to me and there is no

our relationship by birth or adoption, of some permanence.
I understand that, as a pension partner of the member, I am,

in the preceding paragraph, from the Plan.

required by the legislation.
This waiver does not affect any rights that I could have arising as a 
result of any breakdown or potential breakdown in the relationship 
between the member and myself.
I have chosen to sign this waiver and in so doing I give up any and 
all of my entitlement to any death benefit payment.

results of my signing it,

	(d)	the member is not present while I am signing this waiver,
	(e)	I have either obtained independent advice about the

such advice,

	(ii)	if I wish to understand exactly what my legal rights are, 
I must read the legislation applicable and, if necessary, 
consult a professional with pension expertise,

time before the prospective pensioner dies or is paid or 
commences to be paid the benefit by filing with the Minister 
a properly executed revocation of it, and
	(h)	the information that I have given in this waiver is true, to the 
best of my knowledge, at the time when I have signed and 
then file this waiver but, if any of that information changes 
before the member makes the election to commute his or her 
pension or part of it or dies, whichever happens first, I 
undertake that I will immediately notify the Minister of that 
change.
To waive my rights described above, I sign this waiver form.
And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing it to be

alive, has not commenced to receive a pension or received the benefit 
in question and has employee contributions credited to him/her under 
the Local Authorities Pension Plan.  The money representing the 
benefits earned remains in the Plan.
Being the prospective pensioner's "pension partner" means that
	(a)	I am married to the prospective pensioner and have not been 
living separate and apart from him or her for 3 or more 
consecutive years, or
	(b)	if paragraph (a) above does not apply to me and there is no

living with the prospective pensioner in a conjugal 
relationship for a continuous period of at least 3 years or, if

some permanence.
I understand that if I do not execute and file with the Minister this 
waiver and the prospective pensioner dies before any form of benefit is 
or commences to be paid (which time is in this waiver referred to as 
"pension commencement") and if I am a pension partner of the 
deceased at his or her death, I am entitled to receive a pre-pension 
commencement death benefit under the legislation.  That benefit is the 
value of the benefit at death.
I understand that if I give up my pension partner right to receive any 
pre-pension commencement death benefit by signing and filing with 
the Minister this waiver, payment of that benefit will be made either to
	(a)	a beneficiary, excluding myself, designated by the 
prospective pensioner, or
	(b)	the deceased's estate.
Nevertheless, I give up my right to receive the pre-pension 
commencement death benefit payment otherwise required by the 
legislation.
This waiver does not affect any rights that I could have arising as a 
result of any breakdown or potential breakdown in the relationship 
between the prospective pensioner and myself.
I have chosen to sign this waiver and in so doing I give up my right 
to receive any pre-pension commencement death benefit payment 
and to any potential right that I may otherwise have under any 
designation of myself as beneficiary signed by the prospective 
pensioner.
Certification
I certify that
	(a)	I have read this waiver and understand it or the potential 
results of my signing it,
	(b)	I have read the prospective pensioner's most recent annual 
statement or a statement from the Minister showing the

"the member") who, at the time of my signing this waiver, is alive.  
The member earned benefits under the Public Service Pension Plan.  
The money respecting those benefits remains in that pension plan.
Being the member's "pension partner" means that
	(a)	I am married to the member and have not been living 
separate and apart from him or her for 3 or more consecutive 
years, or
	(b)	if paragraph (a) above does not apply to me and there is no

in the preceding paragraph, from the Plan.

required by the legislation.

result of any breakdown or potential breakdown in the relationship 
between the member and myself.
I have chosen to sign this waiver and in so doing I give up any and

I must read the legislation applicable and, if necessary,

commences to be paid the benefit by filing with the Minister 
a properly executed revocation of it, and
	(h)	the information that I have given in this waiver is true, to the 
best of my knowledge, at the time when I have signed and 
then file this waiver but, if any of that information changes 
before the member makes the election to commute his or her 
pension or part of it or dies, whichever happens first, I 
undertake that I will immediately notify the Minister of that 
change.
To waive my rights described above, I sign this waiver form.

prospective pensioner") who, at the time of my signing this waiver, is 
alive, has not commenced to receive a pension or received the benefit 
in question and has employee contributions credited to him/her under 
the Public Service Pension Plan.  The money representing the benefits 
earned remains in the Plan.
Being the prospective pensioner's "pension partner" means that
	(a)	I am married to the prospective pensioner and have not been 
living separate and apart from him or her for 3 or more 
consecutive years, or
	(b)	if paragraph (a) above does not apply to me and there is no

living with the prospective pensioner in a conjugal 
relationship for a continuous period of at least 3 years or, if

I understand that if I do not execute and file with the Minister this 
waiver and the prospective pensioner dies before any form of benefit is 
or commences to be paid (which time is in this waiver referred to as 
"pension commencement") and if I am a pension partner of the 
deceased at his or her death, I am entitled to receive a pre-pension 
commencement death benefit under the legislation.  That benefit is the 
value of the benefit at death.
I understand that if I give up my pension partner right to receive any 
pre-pension commencement death benefit by signing and filing with 
the Minister this waiver, payment of that benefit will be made either to
	(a)	a beneficiary, excluding myself, designated by the 
prospective pensioner, or
	(b)	the deceased's estate.
Nevertheless, I give up my right to receive the pre-pension 
commencement death benefit payment otherwise required by the 
legislation.
This waiver does not affect any rights that I could have arising as a 
result of any breakdown or potential breakdown in the relationship 
between the prospective pensioner and myself.
I have chosen to sign this waiver and in so doing I give up my right 
to receive any pre-pension commencement death benefit payment 
and to any potential right that I may otherwise have under any 
designation of myself as beneficiary signed by the prospective 
pensioner.
Certification
I certify that
	(a)	I have read this waiver and understand it or the potential 
results of my signing it,
	(b)	I have read the prospective pensioner's most recent annual 
statement or a statement from the Minister showing the 
balance in his or her account and know the approximate 
current value of the benefit I am giving up as a result of 
executing this waiver,
	(c)	I am signing this waiver of my own free will,
	(d)	the prospective pensioner is not present while I am signing 
this waiver,
	(e)	I have either obtained independent advice about the 
implications of signing this waiver or I do not wish to obtain 
such advice,

in question and has employee contributions credited to him/her under 
the Management Employees Pension Plan.  The money representing 
the benefits earned remains in the Plan.
Being the prospective pensioner's "pension partner" means that

I understand that if I give up my pension partner right to receive any 
pre-pension commencement death benefit by signing and filing with 
the Minister this waiver, payment of that benefit will be made either to
	(a)	a beneficiary, excluding myself, designated by the 
prospective pensioner, or

commencement death benefit payment otherwise required by the

in which case that pension partner is not entitled to receive the 
benefit, and if the deceased designated that pension partner as the 
designated beneficiary, then that waiver also applies with respect

The member earned benefits under the Special Forces Pension Plan.  
The money respecting those benefits remains in that pension plan.
Being the member's "pension partner" means that
	(a)	I am married to the member and have not been living

best of my knowledge, at the time when I have signed and 
then file this waiver but, if any of that information changes 
before the member makes the election to commute his or her

undertake that I will immediately notify the Minister of that 
change.
To waive my rights described above, I sign this waiver form.

Country (if other than Canada)) solemnly declare as follows:
I,   (name)  , am a "pension partner" of   (insert name of 
participant/former participant)   (in this waiver referred to as "the 
prospective pensioner") who, at the time of my signing this waiver, is 
alive, has not commenced to receive a pension or received the benefit 
in question and has employee contributions credited to him/her under 
the Special Forces Pension Plan.  The money representing the benefits 
earned remains in the Plan.
Being the prospective pensioner's "pension partner" means that
	(a)	I am married to the prospective pensioner and have not been 
living separate and apart from him or her for 3 or more 
consecutive years, or
	(b)	if paragraph (a) above does not apply to me and there is no

living with the prospective pensioner in a conjugal 
relationship for a continuous period of at least 3 years or, if

some permanence.
I understand that if I do not execute and file with the Minister this 
waiver and the prospective pensioner dies before any form of benefit is 
or commences to be paid (which time is in this waiver referred to as 
"pension commencement") and if I am a pension partner of the 
deceased at his or her death, I am entitled to receive a pre-pension 
commencement death benefit under the legislation.  That benefit is the 
value of the benefit at death.
I understand that if I give up my pension partner right to receive any 
pre-pension commencement death benefit by signing and filing with 
the Minister this waiver, payment of that benefit will be made either to
	(a)	a beneficiary, excluding myself, designated by the 
prospective pensioner, or
	(b)	the deceased's estate.
Nevertheless, I give up my right to receive the pre-pension 
commencement death benefit payment otherwise required by the 
legislation.
This waiver does not affect any rights that I could have arising as a 
result of any breakdown or potential breakdown in the relationship 
between the prospective pensioner and myself.
I have chosen to sign this waiver and in so doing I give up my right 
to receive any pre-pension commencement death benefit payment 
and to any potential right that I may otherwise have under any 
designation of myself as beneficiary signed by the prospective 
pensioner.

	(a)	I have read this waiver and understand it or the potential 
results of my signing it,

statement or a statement from the Minister showing the
