423B.11 Temporary disability benefits.
An active member who becomes disabled from performing duties as an active member of the police department of the city by reason of sickness or accident, who is off the payroll of the police department, and who has exhausted all accumulated vacation, overtime, and sick leave credits due to the member, is entitled to receive from the association temporary disability benefits in an amount as the bylaws of the association provide during the disability period. The temporary disability benefits may not extend beyond a six-month period except when an active member is disabled because of an injury sustained while on duty and then benefits may extend for an indefinite time during the existence of the disability. The bylaws may provide that an active member must have completed a minimum number of years of service in order to be entitled to temporary disability benefits. Before temporary disability benefits may be paid or allowed, notice of the disability and application for benefits on account of the disability must be made to the secretary of the association within 90 days after the sickness or disability.
The bylaws may provide that an active member's periods of disability up to one year may be included in computing the member's total years of service for pension entitlement and benefit calculation purposes.
