End Early Retirement Benefits for Senate and House

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Senators and Representatives currently receive reduced retirement benefits after just a few years in office. This should be changed so that they will only receive retirement benefits if they serve at least 20 years in the House or Senate or a combination of both and only after age 62. Additionally, any member convicted of a felony while in office, should immediately forfeit any retirement pay.
