The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate
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.
