You may go online to view your 2009 annual retirement statement beginning March 10, 2010. The Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) no longer sends this statement out in paper form.

We encourage you to use Defined Benefit Access to review your annual statement.

To view your annual retirement statement:

  • Go to online account access
  • Login if you're a current user; or
  • Follow the simple instructions to sign up.

If you have questions about Defined Benefit Access or do not have access to the internet, please contact DRS at 360-664-7000, or toll free at 1-800-547-6657. You may also e-mail DRS at recep@drs.wa.gov.
