Statement of Benefits (WRS Account)

The Statement of Benefits is a summary of your WRS retirement account available each year in mid-April. It helps you keep information up to date and track the growth of your retirement account. We recommend filing your statement for future reference.

Members who have a WRS account will receive their annual statement in the mail:
  • Current employees working for a WRS employer.
  • Former employees who no longer work for a WRS employer.
  • Alternate payees (members who received an account from a divorce).
  • Retirees who have not taken a benefit from their additional contributions.

Note: UW employees will receive their statements electronically through the UW System.

Look over the statement and make sure that your information is correct:  contact information, earnings, years of creditable service, employee contributions and beneficiary designations.

If you find incorrect information on your statement, contact your employer or ETF right away. There is a limited time to make corrections.

See our How to Read Your Statement of Benefits – Active Employee page or How to Read Your Statement of Benefits – Alternate Payee page for more information.

If you did not receive a Statement of Benefits, the following may apply:
  • If you took a benefit in the last year, you will not receive a Statement of Benefits for the partial year of earnings and service.
  • You must update your address with ETF before mid-March.
