Wisconsin Retirement Plan

As an employee of a state agency WRS-participating employer, we are required to cover you under the WRS if you work in a position that meets WRS participation standards.

Mandatory Employee Contributions
Contributions to the WRS are required as soon as your employment is eligible for WRS coverage and are calculated as a percentage of your WRS earnings. The contribution rates can change from year to year based on the recommendatino of the consulting actuary.  If your employment is eligible to be covered under the WRS, you must make the employee-required contributions. These contributions are credited to your individual WRS account. These contributions are vested immediately.
Employee Contribution Rates:  2017 = 6.8%
  2018 = 6.7%
                                                 
Mandatory Employer Contributions
The District is also required to make contributions to the WRS. The intent is for employee and employer contributions plus investments to be sufficient to fund the retirement benefits to which you will be entitled.  The employer contribution rates are also adjusted each year, based on the recommendation of the consulting actuary.
Employer Contribution Rates: 2017 = 6.8%
  2018 = 6.7%
