If convicted of a felony can your military retirement be taken

Resolved Question:

If convicted of a felony can your military retirement be taken away.
Submitted: 6 years ago.

Expert:  Thomas Swartz replied 6 years ago.

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.
