More on the Social Security Fairness Act
H.R. 82 would repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) titles of the Social Security Act, which unfairly reduce or sometimes eliminate Social Security benefits for millions of federal annuitants, including former Civil Service Retirement System letter carriers. The bill has a supermajority of bipartisan support in the House with 305 cosponsors.
