A project for you!
You can get your state legislature to tell the US Congress to repeal the GPO and WEP! You can adapt this resolution from CA for your state! Assemblyman Thurmond is working on AJR 41. It has passed the Assembly and is heading to the CA State Senate. Let us know what you are doing!
Join us to protest these outrageous offsets!
We need your voices for change!
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.
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.
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.
