The pension of any retired member of the pension or a Surviving Spouse or Dependent Minor Child or children of a deceased member, being paid as of July 1, 1947, shall be increased one‑third (1/3) over and above the amount being paid on said July 1, 1947, and the total amount of such pension shall be paid from the Fund established by this Act, and not otherwise. The minimum pension for any person covered by this Section and on pension before
July 1, 1947, shall be fifty dollars ($50.00) per month after the above‑mentioned one‑third (1/3) increase has been effected. Effective July 1, 1962, the Board shall determine the percentage which the actual pension paid under this Section on July 1, 1949, is of the full salary of a First Class Police Officer or First Class Fire Fighter, as the case may be, as such salary was fixed on July 1, 1947; commencing July 1, 1962, and thereafter, increases or decreases shall be made annually at the beginning of each fiscal year of the pensions to be paid under this Section, subject to the minimum fixed above, by applying the percentage determined above to the full salary established by the City for a First Class Police Officer or First Class Fire Fighter, as the case may be, on July 1, 1962, and July 1 of each year thereafter, provided, however, in no event shall the amount paid as so computed, be less than the pension paid immediately prior to July 1, 1962. If a member who retired prior to July 1, 1947 dies or died after July 1, 1947, such member's Surviving Spouse or any Dependent Minor Child or children of such deceased member must qualify in the same manner as Surviving Spouse and children receiving a pension as of July 1, 1947, and those Surviving Spouses and children who qualify shall be paid a pension computed in the same manner as Surviving Spouses and children receiving a pension as of July 1, 1947.
Previously retired members of the Bureau of Police or Fire and their Surviving Spouses and Dependent Minor Children, by accepting any benefits provided herein, shall thereby waive any and all alleged, asserted or claimed rights under the provisions of any previous retirement and/or relief act in effect before the passage of this article.
