Partnering to Build Financial Security for Members and their Families

WRS invests for the long-term. By pooling approximately $8 billion in assets and pre-funding benefits through member and employer contributions, WRS' pension plans pay about 70% of benefits from investment earnings.

Good for members. Good for Wyoming.

WRS' pension plans are funded by member and employer contributions and offer a lifetime benefit once the member is eligible, providing financial security and independence in retirement.

About 78% of WRS benefit payments remain in Wyoming, and the ripple effect of these payments helps stimulate and stabilize the state and local economies.
