2020 Statute


72-2630.Disability annuity; medical examinations; return to service. Any participating member in the Kansas school retirement system who has performed school service in Kansas for a period of fifteen (15) years or more, and who prior to age sixty (60) suffers such physical or mental disability as to be unable to perform school service, may be granted a disability annuity, the amount of which shall be a service annuity determined on the assumption that the member retired at age sixty (60) plus a savings annuity in the amount of the actuarial value of the savings account at the attained age. This amendment shall apply from and after July 1, 1967, to those persons who have been granted a disability annuity prior to that date and shall apply to those persons who shall be granted a disability annuity on or after July 1, 1967. In such cases the board is authorized to provide for medical examinations and to secure other evidence at the expense of the board. Such medical examinations shall be repeated at least once in every five (5) years, and may be ordered at any time until the annuitant attains age sixty-five (65). In case any person receiving a disability annuity shall recover, or if he shall refuse to be examined, then the disability annuity shall cease. But employment outside of school service at part-time work or at full-time work suited to a partly disabled person shall not of itself be sufficient reason to cease paying such disability annuity. In case any person receives a disability annuity and later recovers and returns to school service, the service record of that person shall include all school service, both before and after disability, but the retirement annuity finally paid shall be reduced by actuarial computation in proportion to the total amount of the disability annuity paid.
