To: The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

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

Reason for signing

  • Widows should be able to draw widows benefits after the death of their husbands. Their husbands worked and paid into Social Security for this benefit for them. They are being punished for working when other women chose not to work and receive it. This is an unfair act to working women who are part of the education system in the United States. There are a few states where women do receive the benefit. All women in all states should receive it.
