You Can Fight Back
A Government Job puts you at risk of losing Social Security Retirement Benefits. More than Two Million Retirees have lost some or all of their Earned Benefits.
WEP Affects Social Security Benefits
You can lose half or more of the Social Security retirement benefits you have earned in non-governmental work.
The 115th U.S. two-year Congressional period has just begun. The bills that were introduced in 2015 and 2016 and which were not signed into law have been cleared from the calendar, and we are waiting for legislators to introduce new legislation to repeal the Government Pension Offset and the Windfall Elimination Provision. We also expecting a new comprehensive Social Security reform bill similar to the one introduced in December by Sam Johnson of Texas which contained a reform of the Windfall Elimination Provision.
Government Pension Offset (GPO)
If you are married to someone who is earning Social Security, you will probably lose all SS retirement or survivor benefits due you from taxes paid by spouse during the marriage.
Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP)
You can lose up to half or more of any Social Security benefits you have earned in other work paying required FICA taxes.
