Duty Disability Benefits
Any member, who becomes totally or permanently incapacitated from service as a proximate result of bodily injuries sustained, or a hazard undergone while in the performance and within the scope of his duties, shall receive a duty disability if such injuries or hazard were not the consequence of the member's willful negligence.
The application must be made no more than six months after being advised or six months after the occurrence of disablement.
The duty disability annuity shall be payable during disability and shall be equal to 75 percent of the member’s rate of compensation at the date of disability in an amount not to exceed $65,000 per annum. The annuity shall be offset by any amounts received by the members as worker’s compensation administration from the employer.
“Totally and permanently incapacitated” means inability to perform substantial gainful employment.
