Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) - If you are receiving or eligible for a pension from a federal, state or local government based on work for which you didn't pay Social Security taxes and you or your spouse are eligible for Social Security benefits then read on.  

Your Social Security, spouses, and widows or widower benefits may be reduced.  There are exceptions.  The details are beyond the scope of this post but I can help you determine if and how you will be impacted.  Please contact me directly with questions.  You can also read more at the Social Security website.
