Employer Bulletin

All WRS Employers
Vol. 19, No. 15
July 22, 2002

The Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) and other sponsors will offer 18 free public presentations in September, October, and November for Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) participants. Those considering or planning retirement in the near future are encouraged to attend. The workshops are valuable opportunities for members, spouses and other individuals seeking general information on retirement issues, Act 11 changes, and other WRS benefit programs.

Topics covered during the presentations include calculating retirement benefits, annuity options, disability benefits, separation benefits, taxes, survivor benefits, and health and life insurance benefits. Questions about when to retire and how to determine actual benefits will also be discussed.

Each session is free and runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., with the exception of the session in Beloit that runs from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. All locations are handicapped accessible with adequate free parking.

No reservations are needed except for the presentations hosted by:

  • Four Lakes Network on September 25, and October 2, 15 and 16
  • Interactive Learning Services (ILS) on October 15 and 16
  • Northern Lights Network on September 25 and October 2
