§ 22-903.  Refund of Contributions.
   (1)   Refund of total contributions. A member who separates from service for any cause other than death, disability or retirement shall at the written request of the member be repaid the total contributions made by such member into the Retirement System, without interest. Upon the refund of such contributions, all rights of the member, any beneficiary, and any survivor of the member under this Title shall terminate.
   (2)   Death of vested member before attaining retirement age. If a member separates from service after having accrued at least ten (10) years of credited service and subsequently dies before attaining minimum retirement age, such member's contributions, if not refunded before the member died, shall be refunded without interest to the member's beneficiary unless benefits are payable under Section 22-502 (Ordinary Death Benefits).
