Social Security and ZUS
Updated: Jul 31, 2021
Ohio Division of PAC has engaged in a campaign to repeal an unfair law that reduces Social Security benefits. This reduction applies to retirees who are receiving retirement benefits from Poland but also to many Americans who work in a public sector (city, county, state or federal government) in United States. We are asking all Polish organizations to sign Action's Support Declaration which will petition U.S. Congress members to vote to remove the Windfall Elimination Provision as well as Government Pension Offset.
This year, the “Social Security Fairness Act of 2021” (H.R. 82 https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/82 and S. 1302 https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-bill/1302 ) was submitted to the US Congress. The bill is supported by Republicans, Democrats and Independents.
