(40 ILCS 5/5-157) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 5-157)
    Sec. 5-157. Administration of disability benefits.
    (a) If a policeman who is granted duty or ordinary disability benefit refuses to submit to examination by a physician appointed by the board, he shall have no further right to receive the benefit.
    (b) A policeman who has withdrawn from service while disabled and entered upon annuity prior to the effective date, and who has thereafter been reinstated as a policeman, shall have no right to ordinary disability benefit in excess of the amount previously received unless he serves at least one year after such reinstatement. This provision shall apply throughout the duration of any disability incurred by the policeman within one year after his reinstatement resulting from any cause other than injury incurred in the performance of an act of duty.
    (c) Until the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, a policeman who assumes regular employment for compensation, while in receipt of ordinary or duty disability benefits, shall not be entitled to receive any amount of such disability benefits which, when added to his compensation for such employment during disability, would exceed 150% of the rate of salary which would be paid to him if he were working in his regularly appointed civil service position as a policeman. The changes made to this Section by Public Act 90-766 are not limited to persons in service on or after the effective date of that Act.
    Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, the reduction of disability benefits due to compensation for employment previously imposed under this subsection (c) no longer applies to any person receiving a disability benefit under this Article, without regard to whether the person is in service on or after that date. The removal of this limitation by this amendatory Act is not retroactive and does not entitle any person to the restoration of amounts previously reduced or withheld under this subsection.
    (d) Disability benefit shall not be paid for any part of time for which a disabled policeman shall receive any part of his salary.
    (e) Except as herein otherwise provided, disability benefit shall not be paid for any disability based upon or caused by any mental or physical defect which the policeman had at the time he entered the police service.
    (f) Disability benefit shall not be allowed to any policeman who re-enters the public service in any capacity where his salary is payable in whole or in part by taxes levied upon taxable property in the city in which this Article is in effect, or out of special revenues of any department of the city. The disability benefit shall be suspended during the period he is in the public service for compensation, and shall be resumed when he withdraws from such service.
    (g) Any disability benefit paid in violation of this Section or of this Article shall be construed to have been paid in error, and the amounts so paid shall be charged as a debit in the account of any person to whom the same was paid and shall be deducted from any moneys thereafter payable to such person out of this fund, or to the widow, heirs or estate of such person.
