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

16,794 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i support hr 1795,i would like to see the gpo provision repealed.
I put my quarters in before I became a firefighter, If I can not receive the full benefit refund to me what I put in.
I have worked all my life, raised two children never collecting welfare, foodstamps, unemployment, etc. But now that i go to collect my social security I hear about WEP program. I collect less than half of my social security I paid into. I was a bartender for years then started working for county as a welfare caseworker, this is so unfair now i will be below proverty level receiving my retirement. So now by WEP I will have to apply for these programs to survive this is not right. I worked and paid in to social security and your taking it back?????????
I paid 40 plus quarters over 50 years
Worked two jobs for 40 years to support my family and put three kids through college.
Why should I not be able to collect my full
S/S benefits ? I paid my share plus!
At least give me back what I put in
I paid into Social Security for 40+ quarters, so pay me the full benefit like you do for billionaires.
I worked for it!! Is why!!
