Refund; re-entry into service; repayment of refund.
(a) A policeman who receives a refund and subsequently re-enters
service shall not thereafter become entitled to receive, nor shall his
widow or children be entitled to receive, any annuity or benefit under this
Article, unless he or his widow or children shall have repaid within one
year from July 1, 1929, or within one year from the date of re-entrance
into service after July 1, 1929, (whichever date shall apply) the amount
refunded, together with interest thereon from the date of refund to the
date such amounts are repaid. If repayment is made in full within the time
specified herein, all rights previously forfeited shall be restored; if not
such rights shall not be restored and no service credit for annuity or
disability benefit shall be allowed him or his widow for any period covered
by the refund, and the board shall refund to him or to his widow or
children, and if there be no such widow or children, then in accordance
with Section 5-167 such portion which has been repaid, together with
interest thereon to the expiration of the authorized period for the making
of such repayment. If the policeman received more than one refund, each
period during which he or his widow or children has a right to make full
repayment shall be computed separately.
(b) This Section does not limit the reestablishment of service credit
upon repayment of a refund under subsection (b) of Section 5-230.
