The Wyoming Coalition for a Healthy Retirement (WCHR) believes that all workers deserve to retire with dignity. The coalition works day-in and day-out to preserve and protect all retirees’ financial security participating in the Wyoming Retirement System (WRS). Public employees in Wyoming put aside a piece of every paycheck to fund their retirement. No politician or Wall Street interest should take away the hard-earned retirement security of these public servants.

The facts on WRS
The average service at retirement is 19.9 years, and about 19% of all retirees are career employees with 30 or more years of public service.
In 2017, WRS paid over $679 million in benefits.
About 79% of WRS payments remain in Wyoming and are recycled back in our economy.
