The money to pay WRS benefits comes from employer and employee-required contributions and investment earnings. Contribution rates are a percentage of an employee’s annual salary. The rates change from year to year, based on investment earnings and an actuarial analysis. 

Employers also pay for duty disability, the state’s Accumulated Sick Leave Conversion Credit Program, and unfunded liabilities. These rates vary from employer to employer and are shown on the WRS Contribution Rates Current/Future.

The following link will take you to a page to select an employer name in a drop down menu. Once selected, you can view current and future rates by employment category for that specific employer.
