Sign the Social Security Fairness Act Petition!

With record numbers of cosponsors on both the House and Senate versions of the Social Security Fairness Act (H.R. 82/S. 206) — which would completely repeal the Government Pension Offset and Windfall Elimination Provision — it is time to push Congress to move this important legislation forward for a vote. House Ways and Means Committee Chair Charlie Rangel (D-NY) has announced plans to hold a hearing on the bill, possibly this fall. To show the Committee, and all of Congress, why they must act immediately, we need to show the strongest possible support for repeal of the GPO and WEP from across the country.

Make your voice heard today! Sign NEA's electronic petition. A copy will immediately go to your Members of Congress, and NEA will compile a complete record of all signed petitions so we can show congressional leaders the overwhelming support and urgent need for this bill.
