The Public Servants Protection and Fairness Act of 2021 - Ways & Means Committee

Richard E. Neal (D-MA), chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means reintroduced the Public Servants Protection and Fairness Act of 2021. This act “will fix the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) for future retirees and provide meaningful relief to current WEP retirees.” Currently, 1.9 million Social Security beneficiaries are affected by the WEP reduction.
