Know Your Benefits: Requesting an Estimate

Q: I'm thinking about retiring in the next few years. How do I find out about my future benefit amount?
A: If you are a year or more from retirement, use our online WRS Retirement Benefits Calculator to receive hypothetical projections of your benefit, under both the money purchase and the formula calculation methods. Tip: Have your annual WRS Statement of Benefits handy so you can enter data mirroring your account. If you want to retire within the year, request an official WRS retirement estimate from ETF. We will use your account information to create a customized estimate/application. There are three ways to request an estimate:

  1. Use our secure, online request form
  2. Call ETF toll-free at 1-877-533-5020
  3. Send an email or write to: ETF, P.O. Box 7931, Madison, WI 53707-7931
