I have paid into 2 separate pensions systems -Social Security from my years int he private sector and the MA Pension Fund. I should not be pealized by losing 60% of my Social Security. It is not oduble dipping. If I had known this upfront, I would have stayed either in the private sector or the public sector my entire 50 years of working! And, I still have to work becasdue of that windfall clause-until I am at least 70!

Most government employees(excluding elected officials) are under paid to begin with.Most union and other type pensions do not affect Social Security payments. With the cost of medications and everything else that retired seniors are faced with, I believe that this provision would just be another hardship in our seniors trying to maintain a halfway decent lifestyle. Trust me. Speaking from experience retirement is not easy without this added burden being placed on them. Thank you for caring.

Stop providing Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid to foreigners who did not work a day in their life or paid a cent into social security, but merely met the age requirement of 65 and 7 years of residency. Enough is enough. Stop penalizing government employees as you have punished us enough with low income and base closures!!!!
