(40 ILCS 5/6-170)
(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 6-170)
Contributions by city and firemen for ordinary disability benefits.
The city shall contribute all amounts ordinarily contributed by it for
annuity purposes for any fireman receiving ordinary disability benefit and
the fireman shall receive credit therefor as though he were in active
discharge of his duties during disability.
For each year, at least 1/3 of the total sum estimated annually by the
board as necessary to provide ordinary disability benefits during the year
shall be contributed by the firemen as follows:
Such amount (1/3 of said total sum) shall be prorated among all such
firemen in proportion to the annual salary of each fireman, the percentage
of each such annual salary which the sum related thereto shall constitute
shall be ascertained, and a sum equal to a life percentage of each payment
of such salary, but not less than 1/8 of 1% of each such payment, shall be
deducted from each payment of salary.
The city shall contribute the balance of the total sum estimated
annually as necessary to provide ordinary disability benefits during each
Whenever the balance in the ordinary disability reserve at the end of
any calendar year, exclusive of employee contributions and city
contributions for ordinary disability benefit purposes for such year, is
sufficient to provide for all valid claims for ordinary disability benefits
due for such year, such salary deductions for such year shall forthwith
become the property of the respective firemen concerned. Any fireman from
whose salary such deductions were made for such year may direct the board
to transfer such deductions to the Gift Reserve to be used as he specifies
in writing, or may otherwise direct the retirement board as to the
disposition to be made of these deductions, excepting that they may not be
credited to his account in the salary deduction reserve or in the annuity
payment reserve; and the city shall not be required to contribute any
amount for ordinary disability benefit purposes for such year.
