RETIREMENT CHANGES PROPOSED

ACTION ALERT

State Senator Duey Stroebel has reintroduced legislation (SB 190) to raise the WRS (Wisconsin Retirement System) age of retirement by 2 years for public safety workers and 5 years for all other public employees hired after the bill would go into effect. Senate Bill 190, would also change the way benefits are calculated for new hires by averaging their 5 highest earning years instead of averaging their 3 highest earning years.

WE ARE OPPOSING THIS LEGISLATION BECAUSE: WRS is fully funded & stable – no reason to change it It is a key benefit for attracting & retaining talented employees To correct staff shortages in fields ranging from education to corrections, we need to strengthen employee benefits, not cut them.

JOIN US IN OPPOSING SB 190 BY: Calling your State Senator and telling them to oppose changes to retirement age for the Wisconsin Retirement System
