14.1 Purpose. Pro Rata Pensions are provided under this Plan for Employees:
14.2 Related Plans. By resolution duly adopted, the Board of Trustees may recognize another pension plan as a Related Plan. Recognition of employment under the Related Plan, and payment of Pro Rata Pensions with respect to such employment will be governed by the reciprocity agreement between this Plan and the Related Plan, subject to the rules of this Article 14.
14.4 Related Credit. The term "Related Credit" means credited service, or portions thereof, creditable to an Employee under a Related Plan, recognizable by this Plan pursuant to the terms of a reciprocity agreement.
14.5 Combined Pension Credit. The term "Combined Pension Credit" means the total of an Employee's Related Credit plus the Pension Credit accumulated under this Plan (hereinafter referred to as Southern California Credit) including but not limited to the Future Service Unit requirement.
14.6 Non-Duplication. An Employee shall not receive double credit for the same period of employment.
14.7 Eligibility for a Pro Rata Pension. An Employee who is retired shall be eligible for a Pro Rata Pension if he would be eligible for a Pension under this Plan if his Combined Pension Credit were treated as Southern California Credit.
14.7 Eligibility for a Pro Rata Pension: The Employee must have 1,500 hours of Southern California Credit. Such an Employee who is retired shall be eligible for a Pro Rata Pension if he would be eligible for a Pension under this Plan if his Combined Pension Credit were treated as Southern California Credit.
14.8 Break in Service. Related Hours shall be considered in determining whether an Employee has incurred a Divesting Service Year.
14.9 Amount of Pro Rata Pension. The monthly amount of the Pro Rata Pension payable under this Plan is determined in the same way as the Normal, Early Retirement, Disability, Vested Pension or Survivor Pension is determined, based solely on the Pension Credits earned under this Plan. The benefit unit on which a Pro Rata Pension is based may not exceed the benefit unit applicable to the Participant on his last Covered Hour under this Plan.
