Statements of Benefits Mailing Delayed
The printing and mailing of the January 1, 2001 annual Statements
of Benefits (SOB) forms has been delayed due to the Wisconsin Supreme
Court injunction preventing implementation of 1999 Wisconsin Act
11. The Court continues to review the merits of the law, and no
decision has been reached to date.
The delay is necessary because the Court's decision will impact
1999 and 2000 interest rates. ETF cannot apply interest to member
accounts until the Court rules on the case. Once the Supreme Court
rules - and assuming implementation goes smoothly - ETF will distribute
Statements within six weeks of the decision.
Specific information about Wisconsin Act 11 is available on our
Internet site at http://badger.state.wi.us/agencies/etf. You may

section on the Supreme Court's Internet site,
