    Sec. 5-164. 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.
