Military Service and Your WRS Benefits

There are three ways to receive military service credit under the Wisconsin Retirement System:

    1. Credit under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
    2. Continuous military service credit
    3. Pre-1974 military service credit

WRS members may qualify for any or all of these types of credit. WRS members may also have the option to buy WRS credit for service in the active military, the National Guard, or the Reserves.

If you served in the military or uniformed service and are in the process of a divorce, visit the Military Service, Divorce and Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO) page.

WRS members on a military leave should contact the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) to update their address, include: the member's full name and rank, unit and APO/FP0/DPO with the nine-digit ZIP code.
