  • Use descriptive a Topic Subject.  This will help others find what they want to read.

  • Agree to disagree, then move on. If you know that a member often has a difference of an opinion than you, don’t comment on their posts. If you routinely find yourself disagreeing with the same person and posting rebuttals to every comment they make, STOP IT.

You should post this to either the Retirees forum or Employee Benefits. That being said, you are talking about the Windfall Elimination Provision. This is a law. Unless you paid 30 YEARS (not quarters) into SS, you will have half or more of it taken by SS, because you have a pension from a system which didn't take out SS (CSRS). Paying your military deposit has absolutely nothing to do with it. The military deposit only adds to what you get in your CSRS pension.

You can read about the WEP on the the SS website. https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10045.pdf
