Coming to an Area Near You: WRS Regional Training Sessions

Local government employers, including school districts, are invited to attend WRS Regional Training 1999. These workshop/training sessions, sponsored by the Department of Employe Trust Funds (ETF), are set for ten cities around Wisconsin from mid-September to mid-November. Press for Workshop locations and dates.

These workshops are your chance to thoroughly review the May 1999 Employer WRS Administration Manual. Remember to bring your Manual for reference and use during workshop hands-on learning opportunities.

Have you grown tired of calling ETF for previous service checks? You'll have a chance to preview ETF's new Employer Internet Inquiry program, designed to provide eligibility access information at your fingertips.

Finally, workshop attendees will review key areas in Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) administration. Topics include: determining employe participation eligibility, rehiring annuitants, employe transaction reporting and annual reporting and reconciliation, and more.

Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your skills and interact with others whose jobs include daily WRS operational duties. Staff members responsible for determining eligibility and completing employe transaction reports should receive a copy of this Bulletin and are encouraged to attend.
