(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 11-146)
Compensation annuity and supplemental annuity.
When annuity otherwise provided in this Article for the widow of an
employee whose death results solely from injury incurred in the performance
of an act of duty is less than 60% of his salary in effect at the time of
the injury, "Compensation Annuity" equal to the difference between such
annuity and 60% of such salary, shall be payable to her until the date when
the employee, if alive, would have attained age 65; and in any case where
the employee's death is only partly due to the duty incurred injury, the
"Compensation Annuity" shall be based on an amount equal to 40% of such
Thereafter, the widow shall be entitled to "Supplemental Annuity" equal
to the difference between the annuity otherwise provided in this Article
and the annuity to which she would be entitled if the employee had lived
and continued in the service at the salary in effect at the date of injury
until he attained age 65, and based upon her age as it would be on the date
he would have attained 65.
"Compensation" or "Supplemental Annuity" shall not be payable unless the
widow was the wife of the employee when the injury was incurred.
The city shall contribute to the fund each year the amount required for
all Compensation Annuities. Supplemental Annuity shall be provided from
city contributions after the date of the employee's death, of such equal
sums annually, which when improved by interest at the effective rate, will
be sufficient, at the time payment of Compensation Annuity to the widow
ceases to provide Supplemental Annuity, as stated, for the widow throughout
her life thereafter.
