my best friend is becoming paranoid about his job. he says they are documenting him as they do before firing someone. i told him he was behaving in an un-foolish manner and that he should just enjoy his time
there. he could have retired using his company's (Hughes Electronics just purchased by Boeing) "magic" formula last year. he's been there over 25 years and he's 2 years over 55.

he says no-that if they fire him or even lay him off they probably can take his pension from him-the part the company put in anyway.

is this true? should he quickly retire to protect his pension?
