Understanding Your Annual WRS Statement of Benefits
You receive your WRS Statement of Benefits every year; if you are in the majority you most likely recycle it, put it away in a file, and may even sneak a quick peek before doing so. Or, perhaps you have opened it, but aren’t really sure of what you are looking at and what it means. Join us as we go over the things you can find out from your Statement of Benefits what it means for you, and the connection it has to your retirement. Some items we go over will include: * How much you have contributed towards your WRS Pension * What your vesting status has to do with your WRS Pension * Where your money goes if you pass away before you start retirement And More! *** It is helpful to have your Statement of Benefits with you while participating in the webinar.

WRS Effective Rates and Annuity Adjustments
Do WRS accounts receive an investment return? Do investment returns affect how much a retiree will initially receive when they begin their pension? Do those retired in the WRS receive adjustments to their monthly pension amount over the years? This webinar will cover the process of how account effective rates and annuity adjustments are calculated, starting with the investment return reported by the State of Wisconsin Investment Board. Also covered during the webinar will be explanations of both the Core and Variable Trust Funds and the calculations specific to each fund for effective rates and annual adjustments. At the end of this webinar, it is hoped that you will have a better grasp on how State of Wisconsin Investment Board investment returns affect your WRS pension.
