No, CAF pensions, so far as I know, are untouchable. He’s have gotten it regardless if he had enough service. But it seems he was set up for a beautiful double dip. A 5f would have precluded any further government employment.So someone broke the rules and allowed his Release to avoid a 5F so he could keep his pension? My eyes of suspicion go straight to his boss at this point, and I would go and correct this.
