Social Security - State Govt. Employee Information

The Social Security Administration has a web page dedicated to matters affecting state government employees.

Bear in mind that employees of the State of Louisiana are not covered by Social Security. However, some provisions of Social Security law, such as the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) can affect Louisiana public pension system members or their spouses who have paid into Social Security in other careers, or who might receive survivor benefits from Social Security. The GPO and WEP can reduce the benefit you receive from Social Security.
