    Eliminating the WEP would not be raising our retirement benefits, just returning what is ours to us.

    WEP and GPO were gifts from the Reagan administration. No one in D.C. this year is talking about increasing federal employee retirement benefits. Republican control of the White House and both Houses of Congress has changed the landscape. The talk now is about CUTS in federal employee retirement benefits.

    The White House budget for FY 2018 proposes eliminating COLAs entirely for current and future federal retirees under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). For retirees under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS), COLAs would be reduced by 0.5%. The budget also proposes moving from a high-3 to a high-5 system for computation of retirement benefits and eliminating the FERS annuity supplement for FERS employees who retire before age 62.
