You can add money (additional contributions) to your WRS account and watch it grow with compound interest. Now, there is a fast and convenient alternative to mailing a payment to ETF: Transfer funds electronically.
The new e-payment site functions like any other e-commerce site. You can simply – and securely – transfer funds from your financial institution to US Bank for receipt by the Department of Employee Trust Funds.
You will receive an immediate confirmation of funds transferred and can make electronic payments until 8:00 p.m. on December 31 for the funds to be eligible for interest crediting that year.
Other ways to make additional contributions include:
- Send a check or money order to ETF, along with the Additional Contributions Remittance (ET-2545) form
- Arrange a payroll deduction with your employer
