Happy New Year! As the 2020s dawn, your Wisconsin Retirement System continues to be strong and well-positioned to meet the State’s retirement commitments well into the future. Thank you for all you do to make the WRS the success that it is.

Over the long term, SWIB’s investment strategy -- along with the WRS’s unique design -- has maintained the plan’s fully funded status and kept the WRS financially stable.
