House and Senate Windfall Elimination Provisions bills reintroduced into the new Congress
Two bills, one in the House and one in the Senate, calling for repeal of the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) were introduced in the last 117th Congress, and both bills have been recently re-introduced in the new 118th Congress: H.R.82 - Social Security Fairness Act of 2023 as well as the Senate version and S.597 - A bill to amend title II of the Social Security Act to repeal the Government pension offset and windfall elimination provisions. Foreign pensions should not count against or reduce U.S. Social Security benefits earned while working in the United States. U.S. citizens overseas receiving foreign pensions are not “double dipping,” these are retirement benefits earned overseas in addition to contributing fully to U.S. Social Security.
