Bracketed material. — The bracketed reference in Subsection C was inserted by the compiler and is not part of the law. The reference therein to "Section 6 of the Group Benefits Act" is apparently erroneous. The apparent intended reference is to Section 7 of that act, and the bracketed code number inserted following the reference reflects that intended reference.
