Can You Give A More Definitive Answer?

I am essentially in the same position as the person who asked about the WEP and how it might not impact clergy... That link is here...
Can you give more details or a more definitive answer to this question? Thanks!


I'm not really sure what you're looking for. The Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) has a number of exceptions as noted in the reference from Social Security's operations manual that I linked to my previous answer (, but whether or not any of those exceptions apply to you depends on your specific set of circumstances.

Section B.2 of the above reference cites P.L. 98-21, so if you'd like to read the details of that provision you can find it using the following link: Or, for a more plain language general explanation of WEP, it may be helpful for you to read the following Social Security publication:
