Government Pension Offset Repeal
This petition had 1,266 supporters
If you receive a pension from a government job in which you did not pay Social Security taxes, some or all of your Social Security spouse's, widow's or widower's benefit may be offset due to receipt of that pension. This offset is referred to as the Government Pension Offset, or GPO.
The GPO will reduce the amount of your Social Security spouse's, widow's or widower's benefits by two-thirds of the amount of your government pension.
If you receive a monthly civil service pension of $1,400, two-thirds of that, or $933, must be used to offset your Social Security spouse's, widow's or widower's benefits. If you are eligible for a $1,000 spouse's benefit, you will receive $67 per month from Social Security ($1,000 - $933 = $67).
Please see H.R. 1205 for the Bill in its entirety.
By signing this petition, you support H.R. 1205, which would eliminate or adjust the Government Pension Offset that unfairly discriminates against ALL STATE EMPLOYEES - including but not limited to - all police officers, fire fighters, teachers and all school personnel, and anyone who receives or will receive a pension through the state.
