Which Type of Benefits Presentation Fits
Representatives from the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF)
frequently give presentations at a variety of locations throughout
Wisconsin. These staff appearances offer members an opportunity
to learn about the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) and related
benefits. We encourage all members to attend an ETF presentation.
Statewide benefit presentations, group appointments, webinars and
benefit fairs offer you an opportunity to ask questions of knowledgeable
ETF staff. In addition, our online videos offer you the opportunity
to learn about your benefits where and when it is convenient for

If you are interested in learning about the full array of benefits
ETF administers, attend one of the presentations below. We now offer
two different benefit presentations:
Benefits for Employees Nearing Retirement (ET-7375)
offers valuable information for those within five years
Benefits for New and Mid-Career Employees (ET-7374)
is designed for active employees who plan to continue
to work for five or more years.
Speakers at these events are well versed in all of our benefit
programs. They will also discuss ETF news, insurance and other ETF-administered
benefits. No reservation is needed for these events.
If you are a WRS participant who has a retirement packet/estimate
and plans to retire within the next 12 months,
we encourage you to attend a group
appointment (ET-7114). An ETF representative will offer you
a step-by-step explanation of your retirement estimate, your annuity
options and the application process. You must call 1-877-533-5020
or 1-608-266-3285 to make an appointment.
Think of a webinar as a way to attend a meeting without leaving
home or work. Using your computer and speakers or a headset, you
can hear a presentation and see the presenter's slides through an
Internet connection. You will be able to ask questions and benefit
from the questions asked by others. Click here to view current
