Annuity after withdrawal while disabled.
A fireman who continues to be disabled beyond the maximum period of
eligibility for ordinary disability benefits as the result of any cause
other than the performance of an act or acts of duty, and who withdraws
while still so disabled and before age 50, shall receive the annuity
that may be provided from the amounts accumulated to his credit from
salary deductions and
contributions by the city for his retirement
annuity. The annuity shall be computed as of the age of the fireman on
the date of his withdrawal.
The annuity to which the wife of any such fireman has a right from
the date of his death shall be fixed as of her age on the date of his
withdrawal. It shall be an amount provided on a reversionary annuity
basis from the entire amount to his credit for widow's annuity. The
maximum age of the wife for annuity purposes shall not be more than 5
years less than the fireman's age.
Upon the death of a fireman after he has entered upon annuity, any
unmarried child of his under age 18, shall have a right to receive
annuity under the conditions and of the amount specified in this Article
for a child's annuity.
