Thank you for the information. Unfortunately and quite regrettably, the answer is yes. If you are not vested, you are not entitled to the pension benefits. Kindly give a positive rating to my post so that I can receive credit for answering your question—so that part of the deposit that you already paid to the site can be transferred to me. You are not charged extra for doing this. Thank you for your cooperation.
