    I know someone who lied on their job application, stating that they had a college degree. They had no college experience at all. After many years they retired with a pension. Is that pension in jeopardy should the employer find out that they lied on their job application? It was a government job. Thank you

    Probably not, because the fraudster did the time, even if she/he did the crime!

    But, what do I know?

    I'm just a dummy on the Internet.

    If you're curious, contact the agency's human resource office!

    No, not a bit. Pensions are regulated by ERISA (federal law) that results in pensions being written in stone. An employer can go to jail for messing with one no matter how justified he thinks he is.

    I can't see it being in jeopardy at this late date & already getting the pension.
