Non-Covered Pension - WEP / GPO

Will WEP Reduce Our Benefits When I Reach Age 70 Or When I Started To Collect The Non-Covered Pension?

Hi Larry, prior to April 30, 2016, I filed and suspended my benefits until age 70 while my wife filed restricted application for spousal benefit. My wife collects spousal benefits, and recently I started to collect non-covered pension benefits. Will WEP reduction reduce our benefits when I reach age 70 or it will apply on the month when I started to collect non-covered pension?

Hi,

Will My Wife Still Receive 50% Of My PIA Even If Her Own Benefit Rate Is Reduced Due To WEP?

Thanks for your answer about wep and gpo.

It looks like it's very clear gpo shouldn't be an issue.

However in regards to wep. My wife does normal benefits based upon US work history. Since technically draws her own after applying for spousal benefits, and her TOTAL will be 50% of my PIA (the difference being her spousal benefit) is it possible the reduction we were notified of is a WEP reduction on her record?

What Is The Relationship Between WEP And GPO?

My wife has just been notified her Canada pension based upon earnings will reduce her spousal social security by 2/3 of her CP

I have read the SS OM that states Foreign pensions are not subject to GPO but in have also read SS documents that it is subject to reduction because of WEP.

Can you explain the relationship between WEP and GPO.

Should we file an appeal?

Hi,

If I Continue Working Past Age 70 Can I Earn Additional Years To Offset My WEP Penalty?

If I am continuing to work past 70 and am gaining additional years to offset my Windfall Elimination penalty, will my benefit continue to increase by holding off on filing? My Maximize My Social Security readout shows an increasing benefit after 70 which makes me believe that is possible.

Hi,

Will My Social Security Be Subject To WEP If I Receive A Survivor Benefit From My Husband's Government Pension Plan?

I worked for more than 30 years contributing to social security system. My husband, on the other hand, worked for a job contributing to social security previously before he worked for a government for 20 years with a pension plan. We are both preparing to file for retirement. My husbands social security is subjected to WEP. My question is because I am entitled for a spousal survivor benefit from his government pension, will my SOCIAL SECURITY be subject to WEP when i receive the spousal benefit after he passes? Thank you.

Hi,

Is It True That I Should Be Eligible For Benefits From My Deceased Husband's Record?

I worked for the Federal government for almost 33 years and was in the old retirement system, CSRS. I had also worked in the SS system for my 40 quarters - thus earning a SS benefit. SS decided that because I had an annuity from the gov't, any SS I earned would be decreased by 2/3. When I retired in 2011, I applied for SS. I inquired about benefits under my deceased husband's acct, and was told because we were not married the "required 10 year" - I wasn't eligible under his benefits.
