Social Security Penalty Survey

If you retired or plan to retire under the Maine Public Employee Retirement System you will not receive the full Social Security benefits you have earned. The roadblocks are the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and the Government Pension Offset (GPO).

WEP reduces your earned Social Security benefit and GPO reduces the survivor benefit. MEA and NEA have been campaigning against the penalties and supporting repeal legislation before Congress.

You can help by completing an NEA survey that will provide Congress with compelling data on the devastating and unfair impact these penalties have on educators.

Please fill out this important survey for WEP/GPO.

NEA has more on the penalties and repeal efforts.
