WRS Training for State Employers

Mark your 2000 calendar for Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) Employer training for State Agencies, the UW Hospitals/Clinics and the University of Wisconsin System. Newly hired as well as veteran payroll staff will benefit from attending WRS Training 2000 and expanding their WRS knowledge base. In addition, ETF legislative changes and issues impacting Employers will be covered. The workshop/training sessions, sponsored by the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF), are set for locations and dates listed at the end of this Bulletin.

The sessions provide state employers with opportunities to review the WRS Administration Manual (ET-1127, Rev 5/99), and learn how other agencies deal with specific issues pertaining to the WRS. It's also an opportunity for ETF to learn about employers' specific training-related issues and concerns.

Attendees will review key areas in WRS administration, including determination of eligibility for WRS participation, rehiring annuitants, and limited term, seasonal, and project employees. There will be time for discussion and hands-on learning opportunities specific to your issues.

This is an opportunity to enhance skills and interact with others whose jobs include daily WRS operational duties. Staff members responsible for determining eligibility and conducting previous service checks should receive a copy of this Bulletin and are encouraged to attend.
