September 5, 2005

Benefit Presentations Set for September – November 2005

The Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) and other sponsors will offer 19 free public presentations on Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) benefits in September, October and November. These WRS workshops are valuable opportunities for WRS members, spouses and other individuals seeking general information on retirement issues and WRS benefit programs. Those considering or planning retirement in the near future are strongly encouraged to attend.

Topics covered during the presentations include:

  • Calculating retirement benefits
  • Annuity options
  • Separation benefits
  • Taxes
  • Survivor benefits
  • Health and life insurance benefits

Questions about when to retire and how to determine actual benefits will also be discussed. Each presentation runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. All locations are handicap accessible.

Attached to this Bulletin is a list of presentation dates and locations. No reservations are needed except for the designated Interactive Television (ITV) sites.

Feel free to reproduce the page for display at your work site. Take a moment to highlight any presentation(s) held in your area. If you have an internal means of communication (employee newsletter, Intranet, etc.) we encourage you to include the date, time and place of the public presentation(s) in your area in the next edition.
