(40 ILCS 5/9-147)
(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 9-147)
Compensation annuity and supplemental annuity.
When annuity otherwise provided in this Article for the widow of an
employee whose death results 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. The county shall contribute
to the fund each year the amount required for all compensation annuities
payable during any such year.
Thereafter, the widow shall be entitled to "Supplemental Annuity" equal
to the differences between the annuity otherwise provided her in this
Article and the annuity to which she would be entitled if the employee had
lived and continued in service at the salary in effect at the date of the
injury until he attained age 65, and based upon her age as it would be on
the date he would have attained 65. Supplemental Annuity shall be provided
from county contributions after the date of the employee's death, of such
equal amounts 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.
