Wisconsin Attorneys for Disputed ETF ClaimsHelping Employees Secure Benefits with the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds
Navigating the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) can be daunting. If you are a state or local government worker,1 such as a teacher, university faculty or staff member, police officer, or firefighter, among others, you have a large, complex benefit package under the Wisconsin Retirement System. These benefits include but are not limited to life insurance, health insurance, retirement benefits and disability benefits. These programs, as a whole, are administered by the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF). Hawks Quindel’s employee benefits attorneys advise public employees regarding their ETF benefits by providing counsel during enrollment, assistance with claim filings, and representation if claims are denied. For those employees who are unable to continue working due to a physical or mental disability, our employee benefits attorneys are ready to assist with claims for Income Continuation Insurance (ICI), Disability Retirement (§ 40.63), Long Term Disability Insurance (LTDI) or Duty Disability (§40.65) benefits.
