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

Stop reducing social security benefits for public employees who receive pensions

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.

Big Steal by the Government! Working people and the companies they worked for paid into the SS in good faith. The money paid in belongs to the person who earned it. A big money grab by the government. The government is supposed to be by the people, for the people and the elected officials need to do their jobs and fix this so that the American citizen who paid in gets their money back.

I’m Disability Retired from an injury that occurred in the line of duty. Only got 50% of what I would have gotten at full retirement. So I worked for years paying into social security to help at 62. Surprise, I get $50 bucks a month from social security. NOT FAIR.

It seems unfair that the money I paid into SS must now be taken away because I worked for the state. I paid it but won't get it even though SS has had the money collecting interest, for 15 years.
