Committee Chairman Requests GPO/WEP Hearing

The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives committee that oversees Social Security has requested that a hearing be held to examine the government pension offset (GPO) and windfall elimination provision (WEP).

GPO reduces or eliminates Social Security spousal and survivors benefits for retirees who collect pensions from jobs that were not covered by the program, while WEP slashes Social Security retirement benefits for individuals who are eligible for them in addition to pensions from non-covered jobs.
