(a) The board may require a disability retirant who has not attained his or her voluntary retirement age to undergo a medical examination to be made by or under the direction of the medical director at least once each year during the first five years following his or her retirement and at least once in each three-year period thereafter. Should the disability retirant refuse to submit to medical examination in any period, his or her disability retirement allowance may be discontinued by the board until his or her withdrawal of the refusal; and should the refusal continue for one year, his or her disability retirement allowance may be revoked by the board. If upon the medical examination of the retirant the medical director reports to the board that the retirant is physically able and capable of resuming employment with the city, and his or her report is concurred in by the board, the retirantshall be returned to the employ of the city and his or her disability retirement allowance shall be terminated. In returning the retirant to city employment, the city shall be allowed reasonable latitude in placing him or her in a suitable position commensurate to his or her type of work and compensation at the time of his or her retirement.
(b) A disability retirant who has been or shall be returned to city employment shall again become a member of the retirement system. His or her credited service in force at the time of his or her disability retirement shall be restored to full force and effect. He or she shall be given service credit for the period he or she was in receipt of a disability retirement allowance provided in § 39.239. He or she shall not be given service credit for the period he or she was in receipt of a disability retirement allowance provided in § 39.241.
