Urge Congress: Repeal Unfair Social Security Offsets

NEA supports repeal of the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP), which penalize some public employees by cutting or taking away completely Social Security benefits they or their spouse earned. 

Legislation (H.R. 235) to completely repeal the GPO/WEP has been reintroduced in the House. 

 NEA Supports this proposal.

Your help is needed! Tell your Representatives in Congress: Stop penalizing public service! Repeal the Government Pension Offset and Windfall Elimination Provision. 

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.
