Which Annuity Option Should You Pick?

WRS: Strong Public Workforce

Your Wisconsin Retirement System retirement application will list all of the annuity options available to you. No matter which option you select, your annuity is paid to you for your entire life. It may also extend beyond your lifetime (e.g., to cover beneficiaries or fulfill a guaranteed number of payments), depending on which option you select and how long you live. Here are the many ways we can help you make a fully-informed decision:

  1. Take in a live, interactive webinar, Annuity Options. Feel free to ask questions or just listen along.
  2. Review our brochure, Choosing an Annuity Option (ET-4117)
  3. Watch our brief video, WRS Annuity Payment Options-Receiving Your Retirement Benefit.
