  • Social Security Fairness Bill H.R. 1205
    Updated On: Sep 28, 2018
    Dear Colleagues:
    Over the past few years I have sent a number of alerts to you regarding the Social Security Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP).  These two provisions, which only apply to public employees in certain states, will either reduce your ability to collect previously earned Social Security benefits, or, in many cases, completely prevent you from collecting anything.  Many people are painfully unaware of these provisions, believing that they will be entitled to benefits which these provisions disallow.
    There is presently a bill languishing in the U.S. House:  The  Social Security Fairness Bill H.R. 1205.  It has 188 co-sponsors.  The purpose of this bill is to  REPEAL THE GPO AND WEP!!!  
    UPM is allowing me to forward information to you so that you can make a difference.  The repeal of this bill could mean tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars of income to you over your lifetimes.  Please take a few moments to read this and call your congressperson to urge her/him to bring this bill to a vote.
    This bill could benefit most, if not all, of us.

    Best regards,
    Laurie Ordin
