National Retirement Security Week

Retirement Security Week 2015 is October 18-23.

The intent of National Retirement Security Week is to raise awareness about the importance of saving and planning for retirement. The congressionally endorsed event has recently been co-sponsored by Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi.


Checkpoints Along the Way

This year, the Wyoming Retirement System is encouraging members, and all Wyoming citizens, to consider a series of checkpoints along the road to retirement security. 


Take Action

If you work for a participating employer, consider enrolling in the Wyoming Retirement System 457 Deferred Compensation Plan. If you are already a 457 Plan participant consider increasing your contribution today.

The WRS Deferred Compensation 457 Plan is designed to help you invest for retirement. You contribute a portion of your salary to the plan each month, and your contributions are automatically deducted from your paycheck.

WRS Introduction for Members

The WRS Member Introduction gives members an overview of the basic structure of their WRS retirement benefits, including their pension and the Deferred Compensation Plan.
