If convicted of a felony can your military retirement be taken

Hello JACUSTOMER,

Generally no. Military retirement can only be taken away if convicted of certain crimes relating to violations of national security. These national security crimes are set forth in 5 United States Code § 8312. Conviction of a state felony or other federal crimes are not grounds to revoke military retirement payments.
