Detecting a defect
To all governmental employees regardless of agency, military or otherwise, who plan on retiring, and who at the same time, plan on applying for Social Security benefits: Beware, the Social Security system has two regulations they use to cut your benefits to almost half their amount. These are used primarily on government retirees.
These two regulations are: The government pension offset, and the windfall elimination provision. Ask the Social Security for a copy of these regulations, and judge for yourself the fairness.
Money cannot be used as an excuse when so much is given so freely to all nations, even our sworn enemies. These are defects in the system that need to be eliminated, and can be if all who fall into this category, those already retired, and all potential retirees, will continually prod our lawmakers. Their full addresses can be obtained at the library.
