A. A member's service period shall not be considered as having been interrupted during such period that such member may not be employed by the Department because of illness, injury or other physical infirmity or disability; nor shall it be considered as interrupted during such period that a member may be in actual military service of his Country or state in time of war, peril, insurrection, calamity, or other cause that may call the member from private life to military service, and the dues of such member while absent from the Department during such military service shall be waived. Provided also that if a member of the Department is called into the Armed Forces of the United States, and as a result of his service he becomes totally disabled and receives a pension from the Federal Government, the pension fund herein will pay him an amount sufficient to equal the sum of one hundred forty dollars per month, or if he is killed and his widow or dependent children receive a pension from the Federal Government, the Bus Drivers' Pension and Relief Fund shall pay his widow or dependent children an amount necessary to total the sum of eighty dollars per month.
B. In the event eighty dollars per month, or more, is paid by the Federal Government alone, then, and in that event there shall be no obligation on the part of the Bus Drivers' Pension and Relief Fund to pay out any amount to said widow or dependent children. In the event the Federal Government pays a greater amount than eighty dollars per month and at a later date decreases this amount to a sum less than eighty dollars per month, then and at that time, the Bus Drivers' Pension and Relief Fund shall pay to the widow and/or dependents an amount necessary to bring the total pension to the sum of eighty dollars per month.
