WRS Pension payments are issued in cooperation with Northern Trust's Benefit Payment Services Division.  Payroll dates are last working day of a given month.

Direct Deposit

WRS strongly suggests the use of direct deposit. All benefit payments are deposited directly to your financial institution by the last working day of each month. Each payment represents your retirement benefit for the preceding month.

You may make changes to your direct deposit in your Online Pension Account, or with a Direct Deposit Change Form.

Payroll Statements

Payroll statements are posted to your Online Pension Account shortly after the payroll date each month. Additionally, a statement is mailed or an email notification sent for any month when a change is made to your account which impacts your payment.

An end-of-year payroll statement, with December's payment and totals for the year are sent in late December of each year for your records and may be useful in providing insurance premium totals and other totals for the year.
