When Joe Biden was running fore president his campaign issued a plan for older Americans.
You may not have heard much about it lately, but you can read it here.
Among other promises Joe made was the elimination of the WEP/GPO.
And while he has much on his plate at the moment what with the resurgence of the pandemic and a too bipartisan an infrastructure bill, I just want to remind him what his Plan for Older Americans said about the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset.
Eliminate penalties for teachers and other public-sector workers. Current rules penalize teachers and other public sector workers who either switch jobs or who have earned retirement benefits from various sources. The Biden Plan would eliminate these penalties by ensuring that teachers not eligible for Social Security will begin receiving benefits sooner – rather than the current ten-year period for many teachers. The Biden Plan will also get rid of the benefit cuts for workers and surviving beneficiaries who happen to be covered by both Social Security and another pension. These workers deserve the benefits they earned.
That’s a good plan, Joe.
