S. 1302 was introduced by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and is identical to its House companion, H.R. 82. The bill would repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP). The WEP is part of the Social Security statue that reduces Social Security benefits for individuals entitled to such pension plans as the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). The WEP is the part of the Social Security law that reduces Social Security survivor benefits for survivors eligible for such annuities as CSRS.
