Unsolicited Telephone Calls Regarding Annuities and Retirement Benefits

Some members of the Wisconsin Retirement System have received unsolicited telephone calls from persons offering to come to the member’s home to discuss their retirement account. The caller claims to be associated with the Department of Employee Trust Funds. ETF is not associated with these solicitations and does not share or sell member information to third parties. In addition, ETF does not schedule meetings in the private homes of members. Individuals who have concerns about receiving one of these solicitations should contact ETF toll-free at 1-877-533-5020.

Your Annual WRS Statement of Benefits is Now Available Online

Your Annual Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) Statement of Benefits is now available online in the My UW System portal: http://my.wisconsin.edu.  Login to the portal and go to the “Benefit Information” module and click on the “Statements” tab.  Click on “ETF Annual Statement of Benefits (WRS) Issued 2014” to view and print your statement.  Please note that you will not receive a paper copy of the statement.

The WRS Annual Statement of Benefits provides you with information about your Wisconsin Retirement System account as of January 1, 2014. Information on the statement includes 2013 WRS earnings and creditable service; total years of WRS creditable service, and separation and death benefit calculations.  You should review this statement closely for accuracy.

Statement Section 2 – After Act 10 Service
The name of your retirement category is in both Sections 1 and 2 of the Statement.  If you are in a General, Teacher or Protective retirement category, all of your creditable service will be listed in the “Before 2000” and/or “After 1999” columns in Section 2 of the Statement.

Only employees in an Elected or Executive retirement category will have creditable service in the “After Act 10” column.  2011 Wisconsin Act 10 changed the way retirement benefits are calculated for Elected/Executive category employees so service earned after Act 10 must be tracked separately for this group of employees.
