Affirmed.
(Court opinion corrected 8/6/13.) Village police officer awarded line of duty disability pension received 3% increase to his pension per 2001 amendment to Section 3-114.1 of Pension Code. Ten years later, after turning age 60 Plaintiff demanded additional 3% increase per Section 3-111.1(c) of Code. Those two sections of Pension Code bestow two different benefits that have different criteria and fulfill two different purposes. Plaintiff was entitled to increases under both sections of the Code. (McLAREN and BIRKETT, concurring.)
