Social Security



HIGHLIGHTS


Get involved! Tell Congress to protect Medicare, preserve Social Security, and repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) that deprive 2.5 million hard-working Americans of the Social Security benefits they have earned — educators, police officers, firefighters, and other employees of state and local governments who dedicate their lives to public service.

NEA strongly supports the Social Security Fairness Act (H.R. 141), introduced in the 116th Congress by Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL), which would fully repeal both the GPO and WEP.
