The Statement of Benefits is a summary of your WRS retirement account available each year in April. It helps you keep information up to date and track the growth of your retirement account. We recommend filing your statement for future reference.
Estimate how much money you may receive on your benefit begin date by using the information from your statement with the WRS Retirement Benefits Calculator.
Members who have a WRS account will receive their annual statement in the mail:
- Current employees working for a WRS employer.
- Former employees who no longer work for a WRS employer.
- Alternate payees (members who received an account from a divorce).
- Retirees who have not taken a benefit from their additional contributions.
Note: UW employees will receive their statements electronically through the UW System.
Look over the statement and make sure that your information is correct: contact information, earnings, years of creditable service, employee contributions and beneficiary designations.
If you find incorrect information on your statement, contact your employer or ETF right away. There is a limited time to make corrections.
- Current employees should contact their employer.
- All other members should contact ETF.
- To change your address, complete an Address/Name/Gender Change (ET-2815) form. You may send it in a secure email or contact ETF.
See our How to Read Your Statement of Benefits - Active Employee page or How to Read Your Statement of Benefits - Alternate Payee page for more information.
