necessary prerequisite for a pension or retirement allowance upon
retirement from such service.

2. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general, special or local
law, charter or administrative code and in lieu of any lesser amount
thereby prescribed, in the event a firefighter has served as such for

his or her subsequent retirement for any cause whatsoever, there shall
be added to the amount of the annual pension or retirement allowance to
which he or she was entitled upon such retirement, an additional amount
