Welcome to Wyoming Retirement System

The Wyoming Retirement System provides expert administration and responsible investment of Wyoming’s public retirement and supplemental savings programs.


Important Announcement:

On May 20, WRS launched RAIN, a new pension administration system. While RAIN has put WRS on the path to operational success, we are in a transitional period involving longer wait times for members and participating employers. Please review the WRS website for information you may be looking for.

  • Employers can find RAIN training videos and materials here.
  • Participants who are not in the process of retiring or requesting refunds will experience longer waits for information. If you do not have an immediate need to take action regarding your retirement account, we ask that you use the online resources available here.
  • If you are planning an upcoming retirement, the timing of your first check will depend on when your employer sends the final contributions and the termination notice pertaining to you. Further information is available here.

We ask for understanding and partnership as we transition our operations to RAIN.

Increases to contribution rates for three pension plans effective July 1, 2014

Continuing with a strategy to gradually adjust to the necessary contribution rates for three pension plans, in February 2014 lawmakers approved rate increases in three pension plans – the Public Employee; Game Warden Highway Patrol and DCI; and Paid Fire B pension plans. The first of the increases took effect on July 1, 2014, and for some plans additional increases will occur in the coming years.

House Enrolled Act 11 modified the amount of the increases and phase in periods from the 2013 legislative session, which also increased contributions to these three plans. No other plans will be impacted.

View the following page for overview of the increases for each plan...
