EMPOWER Yourself to Save for Retirement

Being a part of a defined benefit plan, like the WRS, provides some financial security in retirement. But it may not be enough, especially if you’re a woman. The EMPOWER campaign is helping women understand why their road to retirement is different and how the Wisconsin Deferred Compensation Program can help grow their retirement savings.
