Veterans Lack 'California Rule' Pension Protection
Calpensions Link to more items from this source
Jan. 21, 2014
"Why can the pensions of veterans who put their lives on the line during military duty for the nation be cut, while the pensions of everyday state and local government workers in California are legally protected from cuts? ... Military pensions lack this court protection, and so does the general federal retirement plan, Social Security. Both can be cut. The protection California courts have given state and local government pensions is exceptional. In what some call the 'California Rule,' the pension promised on the date of hire becomes an uncuttable contract not only for service already provided, but also for service the worker will provide in the future."
