“WEP—More than 1.5 million people are affected by the WEP. It harms low-income retirees more than those with larger pensions. Everyone knows that the formula and premise are wrong. People are punished by not earning Social Security in their work as public servants, and then they are punished again when they retire by losing what they had already earned in other work (Congressional Research Report).
