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

Messages 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.

Govt Pension Offset penalizes employees who have served the public for the majority of their working career and also worked in the private sector for a minimum of 10 years. When you pay into two funds you should receive the same consideration of benefits, not penalized. I want my money I paid into SSN, because of the WEP deduction, I find it hard to support myself!1

Who ever designed this bill in the first place was an idiot, makes no sense. I started collecting my benefit at the age of 66 while I was still working. Got my whole benefit of $944.00 a month. As soon as I retired it dropped to $377 a month because of the WEP and the $134.00 I have to pay for medicare part B. The $134. I don't mind gotta have health insurance. So yes we need Bill H.R 1795 to repeal these unconstitutional eliminations.

You had to pay a percentage of your wages under each plan and they were not prorated so your benefit should not be prorated.

Please pass this legislation. WEP takes away benefits that hard working Americans have earned. It is highly discriminatory in nature. If my US senators and Representative don't vote to pass this, they will lose my and my wives vote.

Please eliminate these unfair and harmful rules which only serve to penalize hard-working individuals who have dedicated their lives to public service! WEP and GPO are VERY unfair!! I have worked all my life and completed by 40 quarters for Social Security. I know work in a school district and am eligible to retire. I continue to work because of the WEP and GPO. I just want what I should be eligible to receive.

The government offset is a slap in the face. Write your representatives to repeal this ruling on Social Security benefits.

After spending my own money yearly to provide needed items for students it is sad to see how much my Social Security will be diminished by the WEP. Please eliminate the WEP!
