Effective Jan. 1, 2005, the Social Security Administration implemented a program that requires all state and local government employers to inform newly�hired employees of the possible impact of the Social Security Windfall Elimination and Government Pension Offset Provisions.
Under this law, which covers newly hired employees in positions not covered by Social Security, a new employee must complete Form SSA�1945, which serves as an acknowledgement that the employee may incur a possible reduction in future Social Security benefits.
Employers are required to provide the Form SSA�1945 to their new hires. Once the new employee has signed and dated the Form, a copy must be submitted to OP&F.
More information about this new law, including how to access Form SSA�1945, can be found on the Social Security Administration Web site at www.socialsecurity.gov.
