Non-Covered Pension - WEP / GPO

How Would WEP Apply In My Case?

I retired from municipal law enforcement after 25 years back in 2010 and began collecting my pension then. In this job I also contributed to social security. In 2013 I took a job with the State of Maine and began contributing to the state retirement plan. In approximately 6 months I become vested and quality for a benefit if I don't withdraw my contributions. I have read that the wep only applies to the primary pension. How would the wep apply if I stayed in the state pension system.

Will My SS Payment Be Subject To A WEP Adjustment?

A WEP related question, please. I worked overseas for an international organization many years and accumulated a pension that pays more than 50k annually. The pension is subject to U.S. taxes. During my time of overseas employment, I did not pay into social security. Prior and current work has qualified me to receive Social Security which I am eligible to draw on now, or postpone for a few more years when I reach FRA or 70, etc. Will my SS payment be subject to a WEP adjustment? My financial advisor said no; and, I think she is wrong.

Hi,

What Should I File For And When?

I am confused! I heard of gop and windfall. I am a 64 year old teacher in Louisiana who worked about 10 years in the social security system as a secretary low wages.

Is there a book that can help me? trsl retirement about 1600$ who could live on that? Help?
