Accessibility

The Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) values diverse experiences and perspectives. We are committed to making this website and DRS applications accessible to everyone who uses them, and we will strive to ensure continued accessibility as new technologies and opportunities emerge.

DRS uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Level AA for guidance in meeting its IT accessibility commitments.

If you use assistive technology and have trouble accessing information on the DRS website, please contact the DRS Information Technology Accessibility Coordinator at communications@drs.wa.gov. When requesting assistance via email, please write "Accessibility" on the subject line. If you are using TTY, please dial 711 for Washington Relay Service. (Other contact options are available in the Contact DRS section of this website.) Every reasonable attempt will be made to resolve your concern.

In order to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please include:

  • A description of your accessibility concern
  • The webpage address of the material or the application you are attempting to access
  • The best way to contact you

DRS will continue to incorporate improvements to the website and IT applications, as appropriate, to better serve all users. We welcome your questions and suggestions on ways to improve accessibility.
