Pension Information & Calculators


A pension plan is often referred to as a “defined benefit” plan because a formula defines the benefit members receive when they retire. Pension plan members' future benefit is based on the member's age, salary, and years of service while participating. Generally, as the member's years of service and salary increase, so does the future benefit.

The retirement benefit of a pension plan provides a monthly payment for life. The WRS Board assumes the responsibility for investing contributions in such a way as to have enough investment earnings to pay for a life-long pension benefit for each member.
