(40 ILCS 5/5-172)
(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 5-172)
Contributions by city for duty and occupational disease
disability benefits and supplemental annuity. In lieu of salary deductions
for annuity purposes, the city shall contribute the required amounts for any
period during which a policeman receives a duty disability benefit or
occupational disease disability benefit. The contributions shall be credited
to the disabled policeman and shall be regarded for all purposes hereof as sums
deducted from his salary.
The city shall also contribute all amounts ordinarily contributed by
it for annuity purposes for the policeman as though he were in active
discharge of his duties during such disability.
To provide supplemental annuity, the city shall contribute such equal
sums annually, from the date of the policeman's death, which if improved
by interest will be sufficient, when payment of compensation annuity
ceases, to provide supplemental annuity to the widow for life.
