Timing of Your First Retirement Check

The timing of your first retirement check depends on your employer's payroll and contribution practices. WRS cannot process your retirement until after you receive your last paycheck and your employer submits contributions. If your application is complete and your employer has submitted final contributions and a termination notice, you may generally expect your first payment from WRS 60-90 days after your last working day. Your first payment will be retroactive back to your retirement date.

Many members retire during the summer months. Wait times for phone calls or returned messages may be longer than normal. If you have completed your retirement application, a benefits specialist will follow up with you if there are issues regarding your application.

457 Deferred Compensation Plan Investment Menu Change

Beginning in the fall of 2016, 457 Plan members can benefit from the Plan’s new, simplified investment menu, plus a self-directed brokerage account option.

The new menu will still offer pre-mixed target date funds, a simpler mix-your-own investment menu, and for more experienced investors, the flexibility to choose from a greatly expanded list of mutual funds through a self-directed brokerage account. This three-level investment menu will offer you a choice in how active you want to be in managing and customizing your 457 Plan investments.
