Here is an update on the January 1, 2020 Wisconsin Retirement System annual Statement of Benefits distribution. This statement is a once-a-year summary of non-retired members’ retirement account information.
By now, most state employees have received their January 1, 2020 statements. There has been a delay for local government employees, which include those of cities, townships, villages, school districts, or technical colleges.
Local government employees: Your employer usually receives and distributes paper statements to you in mid-April. However, the Department of Employee Trust Funds is not shipping statements to WRS local government employers because package delivery services have temporarily changed their confirmation of receipt procedures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, ETF is working with your employer to mail your statement to your home address. We do not have an exact date by which you can expect your statement, but we are working hard to make sure you receive your statement as soon as possible. These measures are necessary to ensure your information remains private and secure. Thank you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented time together.
