1977 fund disability benefit. Provides that a member of the 1977 police officers' and firefighters' pension and disability fund who receives a disability benefit based on a determination that the fund member has a Class 1 impairment or, under certain circumstances, a Class 2 impairment (disabled member) is entitled to receive the disability benefit for the remainder of the disabled member's life. (Currently, a disabled member receives a disability benefit until age 52; at 52, the disabled member's benefit is recomputed as a retirement benefit.) Provides that, upon becoming 52, the disabled member is entitled to receive a monthly supplemental benefit equal to the greater of: (1) the monthly retirement benefit that the disabled member would have received had the disabled member remained in service until retirement upon becoming 52; or (2) the monthly retirement benefit earned by a fund member with 20 years of service; reduced by the amount of any disability benefit that the disabled member is entitled to receive for life. Provides that a fund member's retirement benefit is based on: (1) the member's years of active service; plus (2) if applicable, the period, not to exceed 20 years, during which the member received disability benefits. (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the pension management oversight commission.)
