First of all, yes, I am currently receiving a pension and have been receiving it since August 2013. I received 55% of my basic salary when I was arrested. Due to my ignorance of the law, I believe that I had lost the right to retire when I was arrested. The thought of losing my pension makes me particularly frustrated because I am the only source of income for the children. Until an employee in my department who was appointed to send my dismissal letter to prison told me that I still have the right to retire. A few weeks later, my child’s mother (we never married) showed up in jail with papers and asked me to fill it out to retire. I was arrested on June 7, 2013 and fired around the 10th. About two weeks later, I filled out the retirement documents and received the first payment at the end of August.
I believe I did something wrong, so it’s not unfair to me to be deprived of my pension, but God knows I’m great [sic] I received it because I can still support my child.My retirement life is now handed over to my parents, because there are my children there [sic] Mother loses parental custody. This money can help my parents raise my children. There is almost no expense in their pockets, which is a great blessing for them and me. I also receive some money every month, and my parents deposit this money into my prisoner account so that I can buy items from the cafeteria that are not provided by the DOC.
I think I will say with others that I am a little bit biased about whether you should receive a pension after your arrest. On the one hand, if a person can still retire after being arrested, maybe not, but on the other hand, I know how difficult it will be if I don’t retire, and how difficult it will be if they don’t get my family’s monthly payment. money. Knowing that even though I am in jail, I can still feed my children, and when I finally get out of jail, I do have income to help me start my life again, which makes me more sober. I have seen too many prisoners struggling in jail without support or money, and then feeling very anxious knowing that they are doing nothing outside. I am really happy to have what I have.
Regarding my beliefs, I can only say that it is fair. Due to a bad marriage, work pressure, and possibly many police officers who have experienced major incidents with post-traumatic stress disorder, I have made my personal life out of control. None of this proves that everything I have done is reasonable, and even if it helps overwhelm me, I allow all these questions. I didn’t get help because most of the former officers did not want to appear weak in front of their peers, regardless of whether they were honest or not. I hope I have not gone too far, I have answered most of your questions to the best of my ability.
