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

11,114 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.

The current WEP provisions are grossly unfair those with small pensions, particularly for widowers or widows who may be receiving only a fraction of the original pension.
Please repeal this - it hurts women who returned to work late and receive small SS income and then their State pensions get cut. A single woman cannot live on this reduced monthly income.
why should we be penalized when each of us taught only 15 years or less as teachers in a 45 year career?
I have worked 11 years for public Welfare Offices, and 15 years under Social Security. If My Social security is reduced by 2/3s of my pension, I will receive no monthly Social Security. How is this fair, when individuals who have not ever paid into the system can get $721 in Supplemental Social Security Income? This law needs repealed.
