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

13,550 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.

I keep signing petitions and hopefully soon the windfall will be repealed, hopefully before I retire from the school system. This is a very unfair law and should be repealed NOW!!!! Do the right thing and get it done. Thanks!
Some things are not right---and CAN BE CHANGED ! I, too, am one of those American citizens who worked for years AND contributed a portion of my SALARY into the Social Security Plan. I then left the business world and pursued a 30 year, full-time teaching career in public education and part-time university instructor. At the time of retirement I was TOLD that because of changing careers ( from business to TEACHING) I would NOT RECEIVE ALL OF MY SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS----I would only receive a very SMALL portion of the money I put into that Plan ( approx. $250. Out of the $1,000.) Needless to say, there is a great sense of betrayal in our POLITIClAL SYSTEM when the very place we trusted our money to be when we retired was GIVEN AWAY BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAD AN AGENDA OF THEIR OWN SELF !!!!! The Preamble states clearly that WE THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES are to insure security and JUSTICE..... Well, people inning the WINDFALL ACT surely decided to just TAKE /STEAL money legally right out of the bank it was being secured in . This WRONG MUST BE CHANGED AND MADE "RIGHT"....
Please do the right thing and support the repeal of the windfall elimination. Those effected, myself being one, worked hard to earn social security upon retirement. Losing 2/3 of my social security has made a great impact on my quality of living. Just give us what is due to us.
I have been signing a similar petition for years! Let's get this done......
Please do the right thing and repeal this law in support of all our valuable public servants.
This a totally unfair law in regards to employees who served as civil servant employees for most of their lives. It needs to be repealed immediately. I believe it is a disgraceful way of treating those who gave a good portion of their lives in service to our country.
Unlike many of our friends, my husband and I are being denied social security benefits which we need to provide adequate income during our retirement.
I have been impacted by this unfair act. Please do the right thing and repeal this!
