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

Messages Sent So Far
<p>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.</p>

This unfair law would reduce my monthly spousal benefits from $1400 to $71. I will need that money in retirement.

There is no justification for reducing the social security benefits for spouses who worked in professions whosevEMPLOYEERS choice to not participate in SS when spouses who did not work at all do receive one half of their partner's SS benefits. Teachers in public schools did not have a choice; however, they did contribute in supporting their spouses just like a non-working spouse did.

This is an unfair practice that discriminates against Government employees who have earned a pension and wish to continue working for the Government in a different career path due to financial necessity.
