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, 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 the Social Security Act.
2021 Legislation Social Security Fairness Act, (H. R 82) by Representative Rodney Davis. (R) (IL) and S. 1302 by Senator Sherrod Brown (D) (OH) these two pieces of Legislation would completely repeal the WEP/GOP.


Reasons for signing

  • I should have received 880.00 and started receiving 236.00 at age 62. I don't think it is fair that this was done. I had to work part time until I was 71. Now have some health issues so I stopped. This change would help my quality of life.
  • GPO/WEP have always been totally unfair and cost me big time financially. Do the right thing, the fair repeal both of these and reimburse those who have lost this income!
  • To encourage Nancy Pelosi to come on board and support this bill
