AMENDS CHARTER; PROHIBITS DISABILITY PAYMENTS TO INCARCERATED BENEFICIARIES AFTER CONVICTION.
QUESTION: Shall Fire Police Disability and Retirement Board be prohibited from making disability payments to incarcerated members convicted of a crime?
SUMMARY: Section 5-306(c) of the City Charter places limits on the amount of disability benefits to members of the Fire and Police Disability and Retirement Fund may receive.
This measure would add to Section 5-306(c). It would prohibit the payment of disability benefits to any member while incarcerated after conviction of a crime. The member's spouse would receive 50% of the disability payment while the member was incarcerated, unless the spouse was also incarcerated. Minor children would receive 50% of the disability payment if there was no spouse or spouse was incarcerated.
