Department of Employee Trust Funds
Revised November 14, 2012

Statement of Benefits Distribution Under Way

The Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) has begun distributing the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) annual Statement of Benefits. All employees with WRS contribution balances as of December 31, 2011, as submitted by their employers, will receive a statement. The statement includes such information as earnings and service, contributions, interest applied, separation and death benefit amounts, beneficiary information and retirement projections.*

Please note:

  • University of Wisconsin System employees will receive statements electronically, through the UW System.
  • ETF will mail statements to state employees, using home addresses on file.
  • Local government employees will receive statements from their employers. The delivery date will vary, depending on the employer.
  • ETF will mail statements to inactive members, using home addresses on file.

Members normally would have received these statements last April. However, ETF delayed production and distribution until updates to individual employee account information – the result of 2011 law changes and various information technology system changes – was completed.

Want to increase your understanding of the important information on your statement? Review these ETF resources:

Online webinar
ETF plans to conduct five live, interactive webinars – online presentations – that will take viewers through the individual sections of the annual Statement of Benefits. Individuals can also ask questions at the end of the session. Times and dates are to be determined. Please monitor our website for details and registration information.

*The statement will not reflect corrections to those employees whose account information was reported to ETF by their employers as “late-reported earnings”. Such updated information will be shown on the employee’s next annual statement.
