WRS Statement of Benefits Available
April 13, 2023

Employees covered by the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) can now view their WRS Statement of Benefits as of January 1, 2023, in the MyUW portal for UW System institutions or UW-Madison. To view your statement, launch the Benefit Information tile and click on the WRS Statements of Benefits tab.

Your WRS Statement of Benefits includes 2022 earnings and service, retirement benefit projections (if vested), separation benefit, death benefit, and employee and employer contributions.


Beneficiary Reminder 

It is recommended that you review the beneficiaries listed on your WRS Statement of Benefits and if a beneficiary is not listed complete a Beneficiary Designation Form.

Death benefits are paid according to the most recent beneficiary designation form on file with the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) prior to your death. Your beneficiary does not automatically change due to a life event, such as divorce or marriage.

To add, change, or remove beneficiaries, complete one of the following forms and mail the completed form to ETF at the address listed on the form.

If you do not have a beneficiary designation on file, death benefits will be paid according to the statutory standard sequence in effect on the date of death.


If you have questions about your statement after reviewing available resources, reach out to your institution benefits contact.
