Sources of retirement income for most Wisconsin public school employeesSave for your future

Most Wisconsin public school employees will need more than Social Security and their pension in retirement—the rest is up to you. WEA Member Benefits’ nationally-recognized 403(b) retirement savings program can help you meet your personal savings goals. It also provides tax-advantaged savings options for public school employees. The 403(b) is similar to the 401(k) in the private sector.

We also offer Individual Retirement Account (IRA) options as another great way to save for retirement. Both Roth and Traditional IRAs are available. Plus, your family members (spouse, children, parents, and parents-in-law) are also eligible for our IRA program.

Chart illustrates sources of income for most Wisconsin public school employees. The percentage of salary replaced is tied to how many years one works. The 40%-50% figures assumes 25-30 years.

For over 45 years, WEAC members have enjoyed the quality financial programs offered by Member Benefits—programs made available by their union.

WEAC created programs such as our nationally recognized 403(b) and personal insurance programs to give members a quality alternative to for-profit providers of financial services.

While eligibility for these programs is generally extended to all Wisconsin public school employees, WEAC members receive preferred pricing as an added value to their membership. Plus, family members may be eligible for most programs.
