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

11,854 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 Act is so unfair if you pay in and support social security you should receive the full benefit .
The Windfall Elimination Provisions are a real hardship on so many who had counted on full Social Security benefits that we paid into in full.
I am a 68- year-old widow who must keep working as long as I can. My husband had his own business but was very ill in the last 5 years of his life. His business suffered, and he had to cash in his IRA so we have no savings. My small pension from my 25 years of work for the town will offset the widow's benefits I would have received from social security.
WEP is not only unfair but makes no sense. You either qualify for benefits based on the formula or you don't. Sort of like all men are created equal but some are more equal than others.
Very unfair law. I should be able to collect the full amount that I qualify for.
The Windfall Elimination Provisions are a real hardship on so many who had counted on full Social Security benefits.
this bill takes the bread out of the mouths of hardworking government workers when they retire
I believe this should be repealed. I am a sole surviving son and do not get any of my Father's social security benefit. He gave his life for this country. We give money to all sort of countries and we need to help our people first. Please let us have full retirement benefits! Thank you Danny D Dannels
