At age 55 (April 4. 2011) I become qualified to receive retirement

This answer was rated:

At age 55 (April 4. 2011) I become qualified to receive retirement benefits. I have pulled retirement papers with a retire date of May 1. Meanwhile; a strike vote is going to be done on Sunday March 6.

Will I lose my benefit if I have to strike?

If the company doesn't cave to the Union, they might shut down operations at the current location. Will I lose my retirement benefit then?

thank you

Jane Doe Deer :

it's just that so much is heard about companies trying to get out of paying a pension with laying employees off before the "magic" age is reached etc.....and the worry about crossing the picket line and repercussions of the union members.
