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

11,594 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.

Please repeal GPO/WEP. My wife paid in to SS her whole life up until age 55 when she took a job teaching. Because of her desire to be an educator, she will not receive her SS benefit nor will she be eligible to receive half of my benefit as a spouse. This law make no sense. She could have stayed home and never worked and she would be eligible under my SS to have a higher retirement than she will now receive from working her last 10 years at the school district.
This is stealing and whoever participated in this WEP should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. It goes against fairness and fellowship of the fellow man. OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! We need a fair voice on what happens to our earned money.
Please repeal GPO/WEP. It hurts everyday .... we so need your help.....

this wep doesnt seem fair. we paid into ssa. why should my other pension be reduced because of my government service.
I am retired teacher and do not get my full benefits even though I have worked several jobs that have pd into SS we shouldn't be penalized because we live in 1 of 14 states who have this provision. We have all worked and put in our time and deserve our full benefits
I am a widow. I can apply for widow benefits at age 60 but it will be offset against my state government retirement. I have been told by Social Security that I will not get anything because of the offset amounts.
This unfair bill impacts many hundreds of thousands of voters. Teachers, police, firefighters, nurses, civil servants etc. Those are many, many votes!! Politicians notoriously pander to these sectors and classes. I would advocate only voting for politicians who support the repeal of GOP and WEP! VOTE WITH YOUR WALLETS!!
I will support any candidate who publicly calls for the repeal of the grotesquely arbitrary and discriminatory GPO.
