[CHAPTER 740] AN ACT To further amend the Act of January 16, 1936, as amended, entitled "An Act to provide for the retirement and retirement annuities of civilian members of the teaching staff at the United States Naval Academy and the Postgraduate School, United States Naval Academy". Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Act of January 16, 1936 (49 Stat. 1092; 34 U. S . C. 1073-1073e) entitled "An Act to provide for the retirement and retirement annuities of civilian members of the teaching staff at the United States Naval Academy and the Postgraduate School, United States Naval Academy", as amended by the Act of November 28, 1943 (57 Stat. 594), is hereby further amended by inserting therein two new sections numbered 4B and 4C, reading as follows: "SEc. 4B. Any civilian member of the teaching staffs to whom this Act applies who shall have served for a total period of not less than five years, and who, before becoming eligible for retirement under the conditions defined in the preceding sections hereof, becomes totally disabled for useful and efficient service in his position, by rea- son of disease or injury not due to vicious habits, intemperance, or willful misconduct on the part of the civilian member of the teaching staffs, shall upon his own application or upon the request or order of the Secretary of the Navy be retired on an annuity computed in accordance with provisions of section 4A of this Act. The annuity which the Government pays to a civilian teacher who is forced to retire under this section shall be the difference between his total annuity as computed under section 4A of this Act and the immediate life annuity to which he is entitled at the time of such retirement under the annuity policy provided by the Act. Every annuitant retired under the provisions of this section, unless the disability for which he was retired be permanent in character, shall at the expira- tion of one year from the date of such retirement and annually there- after, until reaching retirement age as defined in section 3 hereof, be examined by a board of medical officers appointed by the Superin- tendent of the Naval Academy. If the annuitant is found to be suf- ficiently recovered for useful and efficient service in his position and if he is offered reemployment by the Superintendent of the Naval Academy, the annuity being paid him by the Government shall cease immediately. If an annuitant who has been retired under the pro- visions of this section is subsequently reemployed by the Govern- ment, the annuity being paid to him by the Government shall be ter- minated. If the annuitant is reemployed as a civilian teacher at the Naval Academy, the annuity which the Government will pay him at the time of subsequent retirement shall be the difference between the total annuity, computed under section 4A of this Act, and the immediate life annuity which the total premiums, paid on his annuity contracts provided by this Act, would purchase. No person shall be entitled to receive an annuity under the provisions of this Act, and compensation under the provisions of the Act of September 7, 1916, entitled 'An Act to provide compensation for employees of the United States sufferging juries while in the performance of their duties, and for other purposes', covering the same period of time; but this provision shall not bar the right of any claimant to the greater benefit conferred by either Act for any part of the same period.
