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

17,358 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.

We didn't mooch We worked for this entitlement.Reagan was Wrong to do this to us in 83. So Sad that we are subjected to this at our so called Golden Years.What a Shame. So Sad So Sad
I am a widow and need every bit of ss I can get, as I also contributed to it for 20 yrs before working for the state for 12 years people who never worked a day get my share while at 68 I am forced to work another job to support myself
Please eliminate GPO and WEP

Why should someone who never worked a day be entitled to a spousal benefit while a teacher looses here for working.
The offset really hurt my budget since I retired. A long standing Civil service worker 36 years.
worked too long for this to occur. Taking away my spouse benefits .
I came into teaching in my late forties, after working many years and paying social security. I have no other pension from any other jobs, only my teachers pension for 16 years of teaching. Obviously without a full teaching pension, my monthly check is comparatively small compared to a full teacher's pension. Teachers who become teachers later in life should be entitled to the SS benefits they paid for earlier in their careers. We paid in!
I am a retired educator. I really do need my full social security benefits at my age.
WEP is theft. Stop it.
