Elimination of the Unfair GPO and WEP Provisions of the Social Security Act

Elimination of the Unfair GPO and WEP Provisions of the Social Security Act

The Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) penalize people who have dedicated their lives to public service, including many teachers, firefighters, and police officers, by taking away benefits they, or their spouses, have EARNED.

Why is this important?

To urge all Alliance for Retired Americans members, their families, friends or everyone subject to the GPO/WEP to increase their efforts to make sure the Congress of the United States enacts legislation to repeal the Government Pension Offset and the Windfall Elimination Provision from Social Security Act.

This Petition is updated periodically to reflect current legislation that seeks full repeal of the WEP/GPO.


Reasons for signing

  • I signed to support those who do public service.
  • I want the benefits I earned after 20 years working in the private sector.
  • I paid into Social Security for 22 years yet I am still having 40% of my Social Security money taken away... unfair make it right.
