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

22,233 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 worked for the government 26 years. Got a job afterwards and contributed the max to SS for 13 years and 6 years prior to government service. Then the government takes $375 from my SS due to offset and my wife gets none of my SS is I should die because I took the annuity for her. Yet some non citizen draws more and never contributed a dime to the system. I worked hard to provide for my family and punished. I could do better going on welfare.
Please consider this bill. I worked hard for years before becoming a school social worker. I believe that it is fair to receive social security for all the quarters I worked prior to this. Thank you for your consideration.
