Wisconsin Retirement System teachers have the opportunity to elect two members to the Teachers Retirement (TR) Board. The 13-member TR Board advises the Employee Trust Funds Board on retirement and other benefit matters involving public school, vocational, state and university teachers.
The Department of Employee Trust Funds is set to distribute IRS form 1095-C to approximately 400 health insurance program participants who were non-Medicare annuitants in 2016 and covered under the IYC Access Plan (formerly known as the Standard Plan) or the State Maintenance Plan (SMP).
On July 12, 2015, Governor Walker signed the 2015-17 biennial budget bill into law (2015 Wisconsin Act 55). The Department of Employee Trust Funds has completed an initial review of the law and prepared a summary of the provisions that relate to ETF and its administration of the Wisconsin Retirement System.
