Learn About WREA

WREA has a rich and colorful history of protecting the Wisconsin Retirement System and supporting public education. 

"In 1951 the purpose for organizing was to build a pressure group to get legislation enacted to raise teachers' pensions.  In the formative years, the organization did not realize that the problem of legislation would be with the association for the rest of its life."

(Margaret A. Teuscher, June 30, 1975)
