Unfair retirement cuts

Updated 9/2/2021 4:37 PM

I am a retired federal employee who loses $500 per month from my earned Social Security benefit. In 1984, Congress unfairly reduced public employee SSA pensions by two-thirds of the benefit earned and promised for no reason other than to save SSA money. No other category of pensions was reduced. We urge Congress to pass HR 82 and S1302 to remedy this unjust treatment. This unfair law adversely affects 99,640 citizens in Illinois and needs to be repealed so we can get the same benefits earned like everyone else.
