If, after ten years of service, an officer or employee resigns or is dismissed or if his office is abolished, he shall be granted a pension deferred until he reaches the age of sixty-five years or in the case of a female person, sixty years, until he becomes disabled or until he begins to receive a pension under the Legislature Act (chapter L-1) provided that in such last mentioned case, he remits his contributions if they have been repaid to him. If he dies in the meantime, the widow’s or widower’s pension and the other benefits contemplated in sections 77 and 78 shall become payable in the manner indicated therein; otherwise, the deductions shall then be returned without interest to his estate.
