Hi Larry. I am a divorced police officer. I retire in 15 months. My ex-wife is going to get 14% of my pension. Will her social security payment be affected by my public pension through the Windfall elimination provision as my social security will be? Thanks in advance for your response.
No. The Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) can only apply if a person is receiving a pension based on their OWN work and earnings that weren't subject to Social Security taxes.
