TCCTA: Social Security Bill Advances

HR 711, known as the the Equal Treatment of Public Servants Act, now has 100 cosponsors, with 27 cosponsors from Texas, according to the Texas Retired Teachers Association. The bill is authored by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Conroe).

The measure would essentially replace the Windfall Elimination Provision of the Social Security law, which presently reduces benefits for public employees who retire from schools that do not participate in the Social Security System, but would otherwise qualify based on previous or supplemental employment with participation in the system.
