Re-entry into service.
(a) When an employee receiving age and service or prior service
annuity who has withdrawn from service after the effective date
re-enters service before age 65, any annuity previously granted and any
annuity fixed for his wife shall be cancelled. The employee shall be
credited for annuity purposes with sums sufficient to provide annuities
equal to those cancelled, as of their ages on the date of re-entry;
provided, the maximum age of the wife for this purpose shall be as
provided in Section 8-155 of this Article.
The sums so credited shall provide for annuities to be fixed and
granted in the future. Contributions by the employees
and the city for
the purposes of this Article shall be made, and when the proper time
arrives, as provided in this Article, new annuities based upon the total
credit for annuity purposes and the entire term of his service shall be
fixed for the employee and his wife.
If the employee's wife died before he re-entered service, no part of
any credits for widow's or widow's prior service annuity at the time
annuity for his wife was fixed shall be credited upon re-entry into
service, and no such sums shall thereafter be used to provide such
(b) When an employee re-enters service after age 65, payments on
account of any annuity previously granted shall be suspended during the
time thereafter that he is in service, and when he again withdraws,
annuity payments shall be resumed. If the employee dies in service, his
widow shall receive the amount of annuity previously fixed for her.
