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

11,590 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.

this wep doesnt seem fair. we paid into ssa. why should my other pension be reduced because of my government service.
I am retired teacher and do not get my full benefits even though I have worked several jobs that have pd into SS we shouldn't be penalized because we live in 1 of 14 states who have this provision. We have all worked and put in our time and deserve our full benefits
I am a widow. I can apply for widow benefits at age 60 but it will be offset against my state government retirement. I have been told by Social Security that I will not get anything because of the offset amounts.
This unfair bill impacts many hundreds of thousands of voters. Teachers, police, firefighters, nurses, civil servants etc. Those are many, many votes!! Politicians notoriously pander to these sectors and classes. I would advocate only voting for politicians who support the repeal of GOP and WEP! VOTE WITH YOUR WALLETS!!
I will support any candidate who publicly calls for the repeal of the grotesquely arbitrary and discriminatory GPO.
repeal it and make it retroactive to the day you retired.
