PRESENTATION ON SOCIAL SECURITY OFFSETS THAT AFFECT SURS PENSIONS

Sara Stephens gave an in-depth presentation on the penalties those who have both SURS and Social Security are likely to face.  The penalties are placed on two different sets of teachers:  The first is on those who have worked fewer than 30 years for Social Security and have also worked under SURS.  The second is on those who receive spousal benefits.  In both cases there is a radical reduction in benefits paid out by Social Security.

Sara  Stephens urged us to contact our congressmen and urge them to vote for the Social Security Fairness Act (HR 141 and S925).  Both of those bills would repeal the “windfall deduction program.”
