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

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.

If SS is an entitlement I am entitled to all of it

If SS is a benefit, I am entitled to all of its benefits

The politicians are living off the "windfall" of setting their own salaries.

Repeal the GPO and WEP.
What's wrong with getting spousal benefits if you are a widow, regardless of your own retirement annuity.
Please repeal this part of the Social Security Act. I am a single teacher who began teaching at age 48, my teacher pension will be small. I need to be able to draw from my social security as well.
Thank you,
Carol Stewart
GPO, and WEP has caused me much pain and unnecessary stress, I need all my benefits that I am entitled.
Just came from SS office and found out I could get $88.00 spousal benefits. Husband died last July. I feel as if he worked for nothing. Educators get the raw end again!
Im the ******* that worked 2 jobs.53 hr. at 1 , and 40 hrs at the other. give me my money.
I had to pay ss contributions for my second job (full time firefighter), knew my benefits would be reduced, could not opt out. seems illegal, unless you are a senator or congressman with the same issue. they would secretely pass a fix.
I've worked 45 years and over half of my social security is taken by WEP. It just doesn't seem right.
We need your help! Please, please repeal the WEP. I just turned 65, I am a military spouse and a teacher, I worked in the AK School Dist for 10 years and am rec'v a very small pension from the TRS. Also, I have 21 qualified years of SS. Last week I was told by my local SS Office that I would rec'v NO SSA benefits! If my husbands dies first I will have only $800/mo in retirement w/o my SS benefits. I'll be living in poverty. Can you help me?!!
