employee preparing for retirement

“Why should I think about preparing for retirement now, early in my career? After all, retirement is decades away!”

No matter your age or assets, whether at the beginning or middle of your public service career, it’s never too early to start preparing for retirement and learning about your WRS benefits.

Find the right learning opportunity for you – learn things like:

  • How your individual WRS contributions and the decisions you make now affect your future WRS benefits
  • Developing a financial plan now to make sure you have enough other supplemental retirement income to support your lifestyle/retirement of your dreams/do the things you want to do
  • Why it’s important to name your WRS beneficiaries now rather than waiting

Get started now so you can feel good about your best-laid plans later. See our Member Education menu for interactive and convenient webinars, face-to-face events and videos.
