Windfall Elimination Provision
Under the Windfall Elimination Provision, your Social Security retirement or disability benefit is figured using a modified formula when you are also entitled to a pension from a job where you did not pay Social Security tax. As a result, you will receive a lower Social Security benefit than if you were not entitled to a pension from LABF. This provision reduces, but does not totally eliminate your Social Security benefits. For additional information, please refer to the Social Security publication, “Windfall Elimination Provision.” You can also visit Social Security Administration’s website.
