Program for Retired Public Safety Officers

If you are a retired public safety officer, you may be able to exclude up to $3,000 for qualified health and long-term care insurance premiums that you have paid from your gross taxable income each year. To qualify for this federal income tax exclusion, the premiums must be deducted directly from your retirement benefit.

The Department of Employee Trust Funds will deduct these premiums from your Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) monthly annuity payment. For more information about the public safety officer income tax exclusion and eligibility to participate in the WRS Retired Public Safety Officer Insurance Premium Deduction Program see the following:
