In February of 2017 Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL, 13th district) introduced the Social Security Fairness Act of 2017. The purpose of this bill is to eliminate the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset of Social Security. (WEP) and (GPO) are two legal components that dramatically reduce Social Security benefits for federal employees covered by the Civil Service Retirement System.
The Social Security Fairness Act of 2017 currently has 148 cosponsors. Federal employees and retirees may call their Congressman at 1-800-224-3121 to encourage their support for the bill.
