Please let me know your state and whether or not you are a public elected official or employee, and please confirm there were no felony convictions. In all likelihood, your pension is secure, but I'll doublecheck for you as soon as I get the additional information. Thanks.Best,

I am in New York, but the incident happened in New Jersey. I am not a public elected official or employee. I have not been convicted of anything as yet. It happened yesterday and they told me they will call me today.
