Revised Chapters of the
WRS Administration Manual Available

The Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) is revising the WRS Administration Manual (ET-1127), participating employers’ first source for information on the administration of the WRS (Wisconsin Retirement System).

2011 Wisconsin Acts 10 and 32 revised and/or created statutes pertaining to the administration of the WRS that directly affect employers’ determination of their employees’ WRS eligibility, reporting, and contribution requirements. ETF also implemented policy changes regarding rehired WRS annuitants and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).

The WRS Administration Manual (ET-1127) revisions are being completed and posted on a chapter-by-chapter basis; the Table of Contents and the individual chapters indicate a chapter-specific revision date. The page numbering in the Table of Contents and individual chapters will not be updated until all of the chapter revisions are completed. The following revised chapters are now available online:

The remaining chapters will be revised in the upcoming months.


  • ETF will no longer provide paper copies of the WRS Administration Manual (ET-1127); employers should bookmark the online manual.
  • There are pending legislative changes pertaining to rehired annuitants. ETF will revise the rehired annuitant chapters of the manual if and when those laws are enacted.

If you have any questions, please call the Employer Communications Center toll free 1-877-533-5020 or 608-266-3285.
