Employer Bulletin

All WRS Employers
Vol. 19, No. 21
December 6, 2002

Benefit Presentations Set for February – April 2003

The Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) will offer 16 free public presentations and several Interactive Television Public Presentations in February, March and April for Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) participants, especially those considering or planning retirement in the near future. The workshops are valuable opportunities for members, spouses and other individuals seeking general information on retirement issues, including 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 on when to retire and how to determine actual benefits will also be discussed.

No reservations are needed for the public presentations. Each session is free and runs from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. All locations are handicapped accessible with adequate free parking. However, reservations are required for the Interactive Television Public Presentations. Please see the attached list for reservation information.

Attached to this Bulletin is a list of the presentation dates and locations. We encourage you to reproduce the page for display in the work areas. Take a moment and highlight any presentation(s) held in your area. If you have an internal means of communication (employee newsletter, Intranet, etc.), we encourage you to announce the date, time and place of the public presentation(s) in your area.
