The Wyoming Coalition for a Healthy Retirement (WCHR) exists to protect the security and dignity of retired firefighters, teachers, nurses, librarians, and public employees.
The facts on WRS
The average service at retirement is 19.9 years, and about 20% of all retirees are career employees with 30 or more years of public service.
In 2017, WRS paid over $607 million in benefits.
About 79% of WRS payments remain in Wyoming and are recycled back in our economy.
