Action by All Employer Agents Required
Employer Bulletin Mailings End June 1,
Effective June 1, 2013, the Department of Employee Trust Funds
(ETF) will deliver Employer Bulletins and other employer announcements
exclusively through ETF E-mail Updates.
All employer agents must follow the steps outlined below
even if currently subscribed to ETF E-mail Updates. The topics agents
will subscribe to are new and will allow for more extensive communication
ETF E-mail Updates is an automated system that uses e-mail to notify
interested parties about specific topics when new information is
posted to ETF’s website. When either a new Employer Bulletin
or an employer announcement is available on the website, subscribers
will receive an ETF E-mail Update with a link to it. This modernization
effort will eliminate the expense of distributing paper Employer
Bulletins and result in timely bulletin delivery. There is no charge
to subscribe to this service.
Though we encourage all employer agents to subscribe through the
process below, we also suggest that your organization subscribe
a shared, general e-mail address that may be accessed by others
when an employer agent is unavailable. It is the employer agent’s
responsibility to maintain a working e-mail address in the ETF E-mail
How to Subscribe:
- Go to http://etf.wi.gov/employer-updates.htm.
- Click on an Employer Bulletin link that represents a program
your organization offers
- Enter your e-mail address
