NEA supports repeal of unfair offsets – the Government Pension Offset and Windfall Elimination Provision – that unfairly reduce or eliminate Social Security benefits that public employees have EARNED. Representatives McKeon (R-CA) and Berman (D-CA) have re-introduced legislation (H.R. 1332) that would fully repeal these unfair laws. See if your Representative is a cosponsor.
