[Adopted 10-14-1974 as Ch. 22, Art. II, of the 1974 Code]
Pursuant to the provisions of the Act of May 29, 1956, P.L. 1804, as amended,[1] the Borough of Homestead hereby establishes an insured Police Pension Fund to be funded through the purchase of a deposit administration group annuity contract and a group life insurance contract through J.J. Markotan & Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
[1]
Editor's Note: See 53 P.S. § 761 et seq.
The fund is to be maintained by a charge against each member of the police force, by annual appropriations made by the Borough of Homestead, by payments made by the State Treasurer to the Borough of Homestead Treasurer from the moneys received from taxes paid on premiums by foreign casualty insurance companies for purposes of pension for policemen, and by gifts, grants, devises or bequests granted to such pension fund pursuant to the provisions of such Act.
A. 
Such Police Pension Fund shall be under the direction of the Borough of Homestead Council and shall be applied under such regulations as the members of Council of the Borough of Homestead may, by ordinance or resolution, prescribe for the benefits of such members of the Borough of Homestead police force as shall receive honorable discharge therefrom by reason of age and service, or disability, and for the families of such as may be killed in the service.
B. 
If any disability payment are allowed to those who are disabled, it shall be in conformity with the uniform scale and any special agreement between the members of the Police Department and the Borough Council and shall be integrated to make up the total payments needed as a result of any liabilities of the Borough which may exist under any previous act or acts of the legislature of this commonwealth pertaining to such policemen's disabilities.
The Borough of Homestead is hereby authorized to take by gift, grant, devise or bequest any money or property, real, personal or mixed, in trust for the benefit of such fund. The care, management, investment and disposal of such trust funds or property shall be vested in the Borough of Homestead Council, the person, agent and the company having the management of such Police Pension Fund, and said trust funds shall be governed thereby subject to such directions not inconsistent therewith as the donors of such funds and property may prescribe.
[Amended 12-9-1977 by Ord. No. 921; 5-12-1978 by Ord. No. 925; 12-31-1990 by Ord. No. 1004]
A. 
The Borough of Homestead prescribes a minimum period of total service in the aggregate of 25 years in the Borough of Homestead, and shall fix the age of the members of the force at 50 years, after which they may retire from active duty, and such members as are retired shall be subject to service, from time to time as a police reserve, in cases of riot, tumult or preservation of the public peace, until unfitted for such service when they may be finally discharged by reason of age or disability. Should any member of the Police Department, before reaching his normal eligible retirement date, based on age and years of service requirements, but after having completed 12 years of total service, for any reason ceases to be employed as a full-time police officer by the Borough of Homestead, he shall be entitled to vest his retirement benefits by filing with the Borough within 90 days of the date he ceases to be a full-time police officer, a written notice of his intention to vest. Upon reaching the date which would have been his normal eligible retirement date, based on age and years of service requirements, had he continued to be employed as a full-time police officer, he shall be paid a retirement benefit determined by applying the percentage of his years of service bears to the years of service which he would have rendered had he continued to work until his normal eligible retirement date to the gross pension, using the monthly average salary during the 36 months prior to his termination of employment.
B. 
Early retirement benefits. The Borough of Homestead Police Pension Fund hereby provides for an early retirement benefit. The early retirement benefit shall be provided to a full-time police officer with 20 or more years of full-time service who terminates employment prior to the completion of superannuation retirement age and service requirements and who files a written application for an early retirement benefit. The early retirement benefit shall become effective as of the date the application is filed with the Borough of Homestead or the date designated on the application, whichever is later, and shall be the actuarial equivalent of a partial superannuation retirement benefit calculated as follows:
[Added 4-14-2005 by Ord. No. 1168]
(1) 
A partial superannuation retirement benefit shall be determined by applying the percentage that the police officer's years of service bear to the years of service that the police officer would have rendered had he or she continued to he employed until his or her superannuation retirement date to the gross pension amount calculated using the monthly average salary during the appropriate period prior to his or her termination of employment.
(2) 
The actuarial equivalent of the partial superannuation retirement benefit shall be determined by actuarially reducing the partial superannuation retirement benefit to reflect that it will commence on the effective date of the early retirement rather than on the date on which the police officer would have completed superannuation age and service requirements. The actuarial reduction shall be calculated using the actuarial assumptions reporting in the last actuarial valuation report filed with the Public Employee Retirement Commission under the Act of December 18, 1984 (P.L. 1005, No. 205), known as the "Municipal Pension Plan Funding Standard and Recovery Act."
Any member of the police force employed by the Borough of Homestead who has been a regular appointed employee of the Borough of Homestead for a period of at least six months and who thereafter shall enter into the military service of the United States shall have credited to his employment record, for pension or retirement benefits, all of the time spent by him in such military service if such person returns or has heretofore returned to his employment within six months after his separation from the service.
[Amended 12-9-1977 by Ord. No. 921; 5-12-1978 by Ord. No. 925]
A. 
"Monthly compensation," whenever referred to within the Borough of Homestead Police Pension Fund Ordinances and/or amendments, shall mean the total amount of money received for services performed for the Borough of Homestead, except moneys received or earned as unused sick leave.
B. 
Payments made to such Police Pension Fund shall not be a charge on any fund in the treasury of the Borough of Homestead or under its control, save the Police Pension Fund herein provided for. The basis for determining any pension payable under this article following the retirement of any members of the force meeting the service and age qualifications of this article shall be as follows:
(1) 
For police officers retiring on or after January 1, 2016, monthly pension or retirement benefits shall be equal to 50% of the monthly average compensation of such officer during the last consecutive 36 months of employment plus the lesser of 50% of the monthly average overtime pay, detail pay, holiday pay, court pay of such police officer during the last consecutive 36 months of employment or 60% of the monthly average overtime pay, detail pay, holiday pay, court pay of such member during the last consecutive 60 months of employment; and this benefit shall be payable to the police officer for as long as he or she lives; and there shall be a minimum of 60 monthly payments guaranteed. For police officers retiring prior to January 1, 2016, monthly pension or retirement benefits for full-time police officers who retire shall be 50% of the monthly average salary of such police officer during the last consecutive 36 months of employment, and this benefit shall be payable to the police officer for as long as he or she lives, and there shall be a minimum of 60 monthly payments guaranteed.
[Amended 7-14-2016 by Ord. No. 2016-07]
(2) 
Such pension or retirement benefits for any month shall be computed as the sum of:
(a) 
Any pension benefits from pension plans heretofore established by a private organization or association for the members of the police force.
(b) 
Benefits from the Police Pension Fund established pursuant to this article to the extent necessary to bring the total benefits in any one month up to, but no more than, the average monthly pension or retirement benefit amount payable pursuant to the applicable calculation formula set forth in § 50-7B(1) above.
[Amended 7-14-2016 by Ord. No. 2016-07]

The actuary to be employed by the Borough of Homestead with respect to the Police Pension Fund hereby established shall be provided through J. J. Markotan & Company to determine the present value of the liability on account of pensions payable under § 50-25 of this article to original members for service prior to the date of the establishment of this fund, and shall offset the value of any assets transferred to this fund from the previous fund established by the Borough of Homestead, to determine the unfunded liability. The unfunded liability shall be paid entirely by the Borough of Homestead, provided that it may be funded over a period not to exceed 25 years. The actuary shall also determine the amount which shall be contributed annually into the fund for the service of members subsequent to the establishment of the fund, to be known as "future service cost."
[Amended 12-9-1977 by Ord. No. 921; 5-12-1978 by Ord. No. 925]
Members shall pay into the fund, monthly, an amount equal to not less than 5% nor more than 8% of their monthly compensation until they retire from active service. The remainder of the needed annual contribution, as determined by the actuary, shall be the obligation of the Borough of Homestead and shall be paid by it to the pension fund by annual appropriations.
[Added 12-10-1998 by Ord. No. 1096; amended 10-9-2003 by Ord. No. 1148; 10-14-2010 by Ord. No. 1210]
A. 
For police officers retiring on or after January 1, 2016, monthly pension or retirement benefits for full-time police officers who retire shall be 50% of the monthly average hourly wages of such police officer during the last consecutive 36 months of employment plus the lesser of 50% of the monthly average overtime pay, detail pay, holiday pay, court pay of such police officer during the last consecutive 36 months of employment or 60% of the monthly average overtime pay, detail pay, holiday pay, court pay of such police officer during the last consecutive 60 months of employment, and this benefit shall be payable to the police officer for as long as he or she lives. For police officers retiring before January 1, 2016, monthly pension or retirement benefits for full-time police officers who retire shall be 50% of the monthly average salary of such police officer during the last consecutive 36 months of employment and shall be payable to the police officer for as long as he or she lives. Full-time police officers retiring prior to January 1, 2016, shall include police officers who retired during August of 1998 after 30 or more years of service as a police officer for the Borough of Homestead. Such pension or retirement benefits for any month shall be computed as the sum of:
[Amended 7-14-2016 by Ord. No. 2016-07]
(1) 
Any pension benefit from pension plans heretofore established by a private organization or association for the police officers, but only to the extent that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any of its municipalities have contributed to such pension plan monies raised by taxation; and
(2) 
If and only if the full-time police officers had been auxiliary police officers but took and passed a civil service examination on December 8, 1998, and they are legally qualified by law to receive full federal social security old age retirement benefits, 50% of that portion of said social security old age retirement benefits attributable to the wages which the full-time police officers received from the Borough as police officers until the date the full-time police officers retired from the Borough as full-time police officers; and
(3) 
Benefits from the Police Pension Fund established pursuant to this article to the extent necessary to bring the total benefits in any one month up to, but not more than, the average monthly pension or retirement benefit amount payable pursuant to the calculation formula set forth in § 50-11A above.
B. 
For a full-time police officer who retired on pension or died on, before or after April 17, 2002, survivor pension benefits upon the death of the full-time police officer shall be payable as follows:
(1) 
Where a spouse survives the full-time police officer, said spouse shall receive, commencing April 17, 2002, if the full-time police officer died anytime on or before April 17, 2002; or alternatively commencing on the full-time police officer's date of death if the death occurs after April 17, 2002, a pension for the remainder of the surviving spouse's life calculated at 50% of the pension the full-time police officer was receiving or would have been receiving had the full time police officer been retired at the time of his or her death. The surviving spouse shall not be eligible to receive this survivor pension benefit payment if the surviving spouse remarries on or before April 17, 2002.
(2) 
If no spouse survives the full-time police officer or if the spouse survives the full-time police officer and subsequently dies, or if the spouse remarries on or before April 17, 2002, thereby rendering said spouse ineligible to receive the survivor pension benefit, then the child or children of the full-time police officer, until reaching the age of 18 years or, if attending college, until attaining the age of 23 years, shall be entitled to receive the survivor pension benefit that would otherwise have been paid to the spouse if the spouse had not died or remarried on or before April 17, 2002.

The existing assets and liabilities of the present contracts and/or trust funds of the Borough of Homestead Police Pension Fund shall be transferred and integrated into the fund established by this article. After such transfer, the Borough of Homestead Police Pension Fund established by this article shall assume the liability of continuing the payment of pensions to members of the police force retired prior to such transfer in accordance with the laws and regulations under which such members, if any, were retired.
No person participating in the Police Pension Fund established pursuant to the provisions of this article who becomes entitled to receive a benefit therefrom shall be deprived of his right to an equal proportionate share therein upon the basis upon which he first became entitled thereto.
[Amended 12-9-1977 by Ord. No. 921]
A. 
Any member of a police force of the Borough of Homestead who, for any reason whatsoever, shall be ineligible to receive a pension after having contributed any charges to the Police Pension Fund established pursuant to the provisions of this article shall be entitled to a refund of all such moneys paid by him, plus 3% interest on all such member contributions deposited into the pension fund. If such discontinuance is due to death prior to retirement, the member's beneficiary shall also be entitled to receive a death benefit as provided for in the master group life insurance contract held by the Borough of Homestead and as specified in the member's individual group life insurance certificate.
B. 
At the time of retirement, each member will be entitled to receive a paid-up life insurance contract in the amount of $5,000. For the purposes of the foregoing provision, the term "time of retirement" shall mean retirement upon satisfaction of the criteria set forth in § 50-5 regarding the minimum period of total service and age.
[Amended 7-10-1986 by Ord. No. 976]
The pension payments herein provided for shall not be subject to attachment, execution, levy, garnishment or other legal process and shall be payable only to the member or his designated beneficiary and shall not be subject to assignment or transfer.
The Borough of Homestead Council hereby authorizes and directs the Borough Secretary to make regular annual payments on the aforementioned pension annuity contracts when due.
The procedure hereinbefore set forth of including each member in the contract for pension, death and disability shall be followed from time to time and from year to year with the necessary and desired factual changes without the necessity to pass any new ordinance or resolution authorizing such inclusion of any new members or providing for additional benefits as may be required under the existing or newly enacted laws of this commonwealth.
The Police Pension Fund provided for herein is established immediately, but no payments shall be made from the fund established by this article until all of the assets from the previously existing fund are transferred to the fund hereby established.
The proper officers of the Borough of Homestead are hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver on behalf of the Borough such documents as the Solicitor of the Borough shall determine to be necessary and proper to effectuate and implement the Police Pension Fund hereby established under the provisions of the Act of May 29, 1956, P.L. 1804, and any amendments thereto.[1]

[Adopted 11-27-1976 by Ord. No. 917]
The Borough of Homestead hereby establishes an insured Service Employees' Pension Fund for the full-time employees, other than members of the Police Department, Fire Department and School Guards, to be funded through the purchase of a deposit administration group annuity contract and a group life insurance contract through J. J. Markotan & Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The fund is to be maintained by a charge against each member of the Service Employees' Pension Fund, by annual appropriations made by the Borough of Homestead and by gifts, grants, devises or bequests granted especially to the Service Employees' Pension Fund.

There shall be a minimum of 60 monthly payments guaranteed on that portion of such member's pension as may be payable from this pension fund. Should a member postpone his retirement after completing 25 years of service or reaching the age of 50 years, whichever is later, he shall then be eligible to receive an additional 3% of his monthly compensation for each year of service completed from his initial eligible retirement date, until his monthly pension reaches 50% of his last 36 months' average compensation payable to age 62, at which time such pension shall be integrated with payments such member shall be entitled to receive from social security to make up the total required pension. Should there be a duplication of payments exceeding the amount each member is eligible to receive under this plan, such amount overpaid should be refunded immediately to the pension fund or further payments may be stopped by the Borough.
(3) 
Any member who elected to be eligible for benefits as described under Subsection A of this section shall pay into the fund, monthly, 10% of his monthly compensation on which social security taxes are payable and 5% on any portion of his monthly compensation in excess on which social security taxes are payable.
