Wisconsin Retirement System active employee members now have a fast and convenient third option for making additional contributions to their retirement accounts – transferring funds electronically.

A new e-payment site, launched earlier this month, 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.
