We are proud to announce that The Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds recently received a 2021 Governor’s Financial Literacy Award for its financial wellness program, Wisconsin Strong: Your Financial Security™.
The Wisconsin Strong program provides targeted and online education, resources, and tools to help the state’s 475,000 government employees and retirees maximize their Wisconsin Retirement System benefits, grow their financial knowledge, and achieve their personal financial goals. Over 450,000 Wisconsinites and their families reaped the benefits of growth in their financial knowledge with this unique program. Many elements of criteria were taken into consideration when given this award. During an eight-month campaign period in 2021, the Wisconsin Strong program achieved significant outcomes. The results were staggering:
