retiring after 26 years would receive a pension of 65% of salary at age 50.

additional increase of 3% in the pension then being received. For example, an
officer retiring at age 52 will receive an increase of 9% at age 55, 3% for each
year pension has been paid.
An officer who is already age 55 or older at the time
of retirement will receive a 3% pension increase after one year of retirement
and each January 1st thereafter.
An officer who does not receive a pension from the
Pension Fund is entitled to a refund of contributions made.
