If Joseph McMann notifies the retirement board that he chooses to receive the ordinary disability retirement, it shall become effective only if the board determines that Joseph McMann's medical condition would entitle him to an ordinary disability retirement, and the retirement board shall pay Joseph McMann ordinary disability retirement benefits as of the effective date of this act for the remainder of his retirement. Joseph McMann shall notify the board of his decision on the option granted by this act within 90 days after the effective date of this act.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
