Thank you for your question.

Every story I have read about this indicates the crime happened after he had retired. So says the US Attorney, at

https://www.justice.gov/usao-md/pr/former-vice-chairman-joint-chiefs-staff-pleads-guilty-federal-felony-leak-investigation

The plea was made in civilian and not military court, so while he can be fined and jailed, he is not under the UCMJ and therefore not directly subject to forfeiture of his military pension

I hope this information is helpful.

Also, it can depend on the terms of the nondisclosure agreements he signed, which are not publicly available. Those agreements may have provided for other penalties, possibly including forfeiture of military benefits, but we have no way of knowing that.
