Submit Your WRS Statement of Benefits Distribution
Option by March 1, 2002
When the January 1, 2002 annual Statement of Benefits
(SOB) are distributed to employers, you are then responsible for
distributing individual statements to the named employees.
Employers should choose from one of the four special
options to assist in distributing Statement of Benefits
(SOB) forms to employees. The options are explained in detail below.
Return the distribution option selection form to ETF even if you
select Option D (alphabetical order by employee last name).
SPECIAL OPTIONS ARE:
A: Distribution Codes
option, you receive your statements in alphabetical order
by employee last name within a distribution code
order specified by you. As an example, you could
provide us with distribution codes that would group your
employees' statements by departments, individual
buildings where employees work, or by different cities
where employees work.
B: Employee Home Addresses
option, you receive your statements by your employees'
home addresses in zip code order. This
would enable you to simply attach postage
and mail the statements directly to employees, rather
than distributing statements at the work sites.

option you receive your statements in alphabetical
