Equal Treatment of Public Servants Act of 2015

Amends title II (Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance) (OASDI) of the Social Security Act to replace the current windfall elimination provision (WEP) (that reduces the Social Security benefits of workers who also have pension benefits from employment not covered by Social Security) for individuals who: (1) become eligible for old-age insurance benefits after 2016 or would attain age 62 after 2016 and become eligible for disability insurance benefits after 2016, (2) subsequently become entitled to such benefits, and (3) have earnings derived from noncovered service performed after 1977.

Establishes a new formula for the treatment of noncovered earnings in determining Social Security benefits.

Prescribes a second formula to modify the WEP for current beneficiaries.

Directs the Commissioner of Social Security to recover overpayments from certain individuals.
