Retirees receiving an annuity may return to work with a WRS employer after a specified waiting period.  The member must either terminate their annuity and become a WRS-participating employee again or continue to receive their annuity as well as wages and not be a participating employee. This is determined by whether their new position meets the WRS participation standards.

See the Summary of 2013 Wisconsin Act 20 July 3, 2013 news article for more information.
