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

20,858 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 law is so unfair.
I paid into SS I should not be have a penalty of any kind.
Sense I paid my 40 quarters prior to my gov employment I should be eligible for my full benefit. My wife also falls under this unfair law.
If I paid in to Social Security 40 credits, before my government hiring, I should be entitled to collect the full amount, like anyone else who put in to SS.
I retired in FL. With a small pension from the city. I received a pittance from RrB for 6 months after first husband died. I remarried moved to MD. RRB refused to give me the pittance of widows benefit. Made me pay back over 16,000 for 4 yr. period I received it. My current husband gets his social security check and works. The offset will not allow me to get social security benefits because my retirement check is a few dollars more than SS, I have been screwed over twice, I will be 70 yrs old this yr. government steals citizens money.
