Such retirement fund shall be created and maintained in the following manner: First by an assessment of not less than one per cent nor more than one and one-half per cent of every installment of salary paid to a teacher employed in such city; second, by the setting aside from the general fund for the support of the schools in such city, of an amount which shall be not less than one and onehalf times the amount of salary assessments, and not less than the amount necessary to meet the payments herein provided for; third, by the receipt, by the gift or otherwise of any real, personal or mixed property or any interest therein.

Any teacher so retired under the foregoing provision of this section, provided that at least fifteen years of such accredited teaching experience shall have been in the public schools of such cities of the first class, shall be entitled to receive from such retirement fund, so long as such teacher may live, equal monthly payments, which shall aggregate $500 per annum; provided, however, that no one shall receive such pension without paying into the fund therefor, by way of assessment or otherwise, not less than one-half of the amount of the first annual pension to which such person shall be entitled. And in order to make up such one-half the board of education may provide for any deficiency by deducting the necessary amount from the first year's pension payments in equal amounts each month. (Laws 1911, ch. 280, sec. 3.)

SEC. 554. Retirement on Account of Disability or Incapacity.

Any teacher so retired, provided that at least fifteen years of such accredited teaching experience shall have been in the public schools of cities of the first class, shall be entitled to receive from such retirement fund, during the period of retirement, monthly installments, the annual aggregate of which shall be such percentage of $500 as the number of years of such accredited teaching experience of the beneficiary shall bear to the term of thirty years. Any teacher so retired may, at the discretion of the board of education, should such teacher's incapacity or disability be removed, be reinstated as a teacher, and any right to any payments from this fund until such teacher again be retired shall cease with such reinstatement. And shall any teacher be so reinstated the years of such retirement shall be included in arriving at the term of service when such teacher may again be retired, but no credit for such years of retirement shall be given in arriving at the amount such teacher shall be entitled to receive from, the retirement fund.

Should a teacher duly accredited in a city of the first class accept service in the public schools of any other city of the first class, a sum equivalent to all payments made by such teacher into the retirement fund shall be transferred to the retirement fund of the city in which such service is accepted. Any teacher who shall retire voluntarily from the service shall receive a refund of one-half of the money he or she shall have contributed under this act. And should any teacher die before receiving any of the benefits or pensions by this act provided the board of education shall pay to such teacher's heirs or estate one-half of the amount, without interest, which shall have been paid into such pension fund by said teacher. (Laws 1911, ch. 280, sec. 5.)
