Supplemental Retirement

Benefited employees are eligible to enroll in a 403(b) and/or 457(b) plan. Enrollment is available any time and will take effect the month after the enrollment form is received. The State of Wyoming contributes $20 per month if the employee contributes a minimum of $20 per month. 

Visit the Payroll website for details to compare the 403(b) and 457(b) plans.

Participant enrollment or changes to your contributions can made using the 403(b) Supplemental Retirement and 457(b) Deferred Compensation Agreement form. Participants in the Wyoming Retirement System Deferred Compensation Plan should NOT use this form.

Wyoming Retirement System (WRS) 457 Deferred Compensation Plan enrollment can be made using the Participant Enrollment form. Payroll changes to the WRS Deferred Compensation Plan can be made by using the Paycheck Contribution Election form.
