Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of any law to the contrary and in order to promote the public good, the State-Boston retirement board is hereby authorized and directed to retire Paul R. O'Neil, a police officer of the city of Boston, who as a result of injuries sustained by him while in the performance of his duties as a police officer is totally and permanently incapacitated for further service as a police officer. The annual amount of pension payable said Paul R. O'Neil under this act shall be fixed in an amount equal to the regular rate of compensation which he would have been paid had he continued in service as a police officer of said city at the grade held by him at the time of his retirement. Such retirement shall become effective as of the date following the last day on which he received regular compensation. Upon such retirement, the State-Boston retirement board shall forthwith pay to him the amount credited to him as accumulated total deductions in the annuity savings.
SECTION 2. The provisions of section one hundred of chapter forty-one of the General Laws shall continue to apply to said Paul R. O'Neil relative to his receiving such indemnification by said city for all hospital, medical and related expenses that have been or may be, incurred after the date of his retirement as a result of the aforementioned incapacity.
SECTION 3. Upon the death of said Paul R. O'Neil, leaving Rose C. O'Neil, his wife surviving him, the State-Boston retirement board shall pay to her so long as she remains unmarried, a pension in the amount of three-fourths the amount of the pension payable to him, per month at the time of his death. If said Rose C. O'Neil, remarries, said city shall pay, in lieu of the aforesaid pension to her, a pension of five hundred and twenty dollars per month to her.
