Program Information

The Wisconsin Deferred Compensation (WDC) Program is a supplemental retirement savings program regulated by Section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code. It is available to all State and University of Wisconsin employees, as well as employees of local governments and school districts in Wisconsin that have elected to offer the WDC.


The WDC provides eligible employees with the opportunity to invest a portion of their annual earnings on a before- or after-tax basis to supplement retirement income. Federal tax law sets forth certain limitations and restrictions that must be followed, including the amount of employee compensation that can be deferred as well as when and how account balances can be distributed. You can make either before-tax or after-tax Roth contributions and there is currently no minimum per-pay-period contribution required of a participant. The maximum annual contribution is generally the lesser of the regulatory indexed limitation or 100% of adjusted gross compensation.


Everything you need to know about the WDC Program is here at your fingertips. From WDC policies and fee information to investment options and quarterly newsletters, all the information is just a click or two away.


Can't find what you're looking for or have a question? Contact the WDC directly at (877) 457-WDCP (9327), 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday. You may also email us at wdcprogram@gwrs.com.
