H.R.1795 - Repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) provision

18,910 Letters Sent So Far

Bill H.R. 1795 has been introduced in Congress. Please support this bill to amend title II of the Social Security Act and repeal the Government Pension Offset(GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provisions (WEP). GPO and WEP unfairly, and only, penalize government employees whose social security pensions are reduced by two-thirds of their state pensions. This impacts teachers, police, firefighters, postal workers, civil servants, and state nurses.

Public fairness demands this repeal. There is no logic, financial or otherwise, that justifies paying into two systems, and then having 60% of my earned social security benefit confiscated by the government.
My deceased husband paid into social security for 55 years. Died 7/2012.
I do not get any of his social security money because I have a teacher's pension. 8 plus percent was taken out of every check for years!
I am having a tough time paying all the bills.
Please pass this repeal of the Windfall Act, etc.
Not fair that my wives Social Security that she earned be penalized by my Federal retirement and the spousal benefit that I pay for each month. Also my Social Security benefit that I earned be reduced because I am a Federal Retiree is unfair.
This bill needs to become law today. It is not fair that after serving 21 years in U.S. Air Forcce and paid social security that I be penalized because I became a teacher in Illinois. Now that I am approaching 20 years as a teacher in Illinois and will be retiring in the next 2 years I need to know that I receive my full social security. This is discrimination against those who work for the state and are affected by such uncalled laws.
Please repeal this provision! It is unfair and harms our most dedicated public employees.
Please repeal GPO act, it is unfair.
Please support repealing this unfair provision. We have earned our social security and should be treated equal with the same benefit as all our citizens.We only ask for what we have earned no more and no less.
Vote to eliminate the GPO!
Donald Trump is the only person that will act on this as an Executive Decision, so VOTE TRUMP
Please repeal this unfair act!
I have worked over 35 years and still working. i should not have to choose between having heat or food.
The current policy to reduce ss for those people who receive a government pension is unfair and not justified. I paid into ss for 20 years, why should I not get my full ss. It's no different than a wife joining the workforce later in life, her ss would not be reduced.
