Chapter 18 PENSIONS*
Section 18-113 Benefits not assignable or subject to execution.
The benefits payable from the firefighters' retirement fund
shall not be assignable or subject to
counter-claim, recoupment or set off. Except for qualified domestic relations orders, benefits
payable from the firefighters' retirement fund shall not be subject to assessment, garnishment,
execution, injunction, or any other decree, order, process or proceeding in any court for the
payment of any debt of any beneficiary, and the sum shall be held and distributed solely for the
purpose of this division. This provision shall not prevent the fire retirement board from pursuing
a retiree or other beneficiary of the firefighters' retirement plan for recovery of benefits
erroneously paid or to recover benefits paid due to fraud, duress or the concealment of any
material fact necessary to properly process a claim for benefits.
