Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
If you receive a pension from a government job in which you did not pay Social Security taxes, some or all of your Social Security spouse's, widow's or widower's benefit may be offset due to receipt of that pension. This offset is referred to as the Government Pension Offset, or GPO.
You may apply for spousal benefits but the GPO will reduce the amount of your Social Security spouse's benefits by two-thirds of the amount of your government pension.
If you need additional information about the benefit, please read the "When won't my Social Security benefits be reduced?" section of the "https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10007.pdf" factsheet.
Please advise if you need more information or rating in a positive way is acceptable.
