I think the correct answer is B,
as "be retained ... " is parallel to "be allowed.."

Choice B change the meaning and make the pronoun "them" refer wrong antecedent. "all pensions" cannot "be allowed to cash".

Correct choice is E

Nope, to retain not parallel with to cash. If those two verb are ||, how can you explain with "be". Just see the pronoun "them" in underlined part. "them" in choice B have clearer antecedent "pensions" instead of "employees". If use choice B, the non-underlined part will become "pensions be allowed to cash them (pensions or employees) in at retirements.

e)employees to retain all pensions


be allowed to cash them -> suggests that employees needs to be the subject
B, C and D out

E is the only option that treats employees to retain and employees be allowed - idiomatic and parallel
