Military Service and Your WRS Benefits
There are three ways to receive military service credit under
the Wisconsin Retirement System:
- Credit under the Uniformed
Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
- Continuous military service
- Pre-1974 military service
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)
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.
