What's My Account Balance?

What is my WRS account balance? It’s a question that we hear often. Our first response: Do you have your most recent annual Statement of Benefits? Each year in April, the Department of Employee Trust Funds sends statements to all active employees. The statement provides individual information about your account as of the end of the prior calendar year. The information includes years of service, balances, interest applied, your beneficiary designation, etc. Your estimated future retirement benefit is also shown using a Money Purchase and a Formula retirement benefit calculation. We distribute your statement to you either via your employer or we mail it directly to your home address on file.

Don’t forget: Be sure your employer has your current home address on file. This will ensure your statement gets to you in a timely fashion.

At this time, ETF does not provide online access to individual account or benefits information. We’re working on a new online benefits administration system for members, but the project will take a couple of years to complete.
