What is a group retirement appointment? Group appointments can accommodate up to 12 members and their guests; therefore, wait times for group appointments are usually much shorter than for individual appointments. The ETF benefits specialist reviews the same topics covered in an individual appointment, and attendees will have the benefit of learning from other members’ questions. No individual or personal information is shared with the group.

Topics include:

  • Your retirement benefit estimates and application
  • Health and life insurance
  • Beneficiaries and death benefits
  • Mailings you can expect to receive from ETF after retirement
  • Annual annuity adjustments
  • Wisconsin Retirement System return to work rules
