This provision shall 18 apply throughout the duration of any disability incurred by 19 the policeman within one year after his reinstatement 20 resulting from any cause other than injury incurred in the 21 performance of an act of duty. 22 (c) Until January 1, 2001, a policeman who assumes 23 regular employment for compensation, while in receipt of 24 ordinary or duty disability benefits, shall not be entitled 25 to receive any amount of such disability benefits which, when 26 added to his compensation for such employment during 27 disability, would exceed 150% of the rate of salary which 28 would be paid to him if he were working in his regularly 29 appointed civil service position as a policeman.
