Protect Benefits of Over 2.5 million Social Security Recipients. Discharge Petition H.Res.1367
Polish American Strategic Initiative (PASI) November 16, 2022
Dear Officers and Members of Polish American Organizations, I am writing to ask your help urging House of Representatives members to sign Discharge Petition H.Res. 1367, filed with the House Clerk on September 30, 2022.
H.Res. 1367 is a Petition to Discharge the bipartisan bill H.R. 82, “Social Security Fairness Act of 2021”, so it can be brought to the House floor for a vote. H.R. 82 permanently repeals the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and the Government Pension Offset (GPO), which are penalties that unfairly reduce the benefits of over 2.5 million Social Security recipients.
One group among these recipients is Polish Americans who first earned a Polish pension, legally immigrated to the States, and then earned a Social Security pension. When they went to collect their Social Security pension, they were met with a shocking surprise. WEP requires their American pension to be reduced because they did not pay into Social Security while earning their Polish pension. As a result, many have experienced a significant reduction in their standard of living.
The WEP is a longstanding injustice that must be eliminated. It is imperative that House members vote to repeal it. 218 signatures of the US Representatives are required under the Discharge Petition by December 6, 2022, for it to be brought to the vote.
Polish Americans must urge their Representatives to sign H.Res. 1367 and then vote to pass H.R. 82 when it is brought to the House floor. The letter I've included informs Representatives of the details and can be used by your organization members as an email, letter, or script imploring them to sign the Discharge Petition. One can also email one’s U.S. Representative automatically using our system located at:
We'd like to ask you to convey to the members of your organization the importance of immediately urging their Representatives to sign H.Res. 1367, and vote for H.R. 82 when it is brought to the House floor.
