Speak out for Social Security Fairness
Monday May 6, 2013
Tags: News 


A bipartisan bill was introduced in the House this week to repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO), which reduces public employees’ Social Security spousal or survivor benefits by two-thirds of their public pension, and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP), which reduces the earned Social Security benefits of an individual who also receives a public pension from a job not covered by Social Security. This week, Representatives Rodney Davis (R-IL) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) introduced a bill that would amend Title II of the Social Security Act and repeal GPO and WEP. A bipartisan bill is expected to be introduced in the Senate the week of May 6. 

TAKE ACTION TODAY! 
E-mail Congress — Tell your Representative to support and co-sponsor the bill to end GPO and WEP, and restore Social Security fairness. Visit http://www.nea.org/home/16491.htm for more information.
