The director of the Wyoming Retirement System is scheduled to retire in August after five years of heading the state's $6.5 billion fund.
Wyoming Retirement Board members asked Thomas Williams to remain until August to give them time to search for a replacement, according to the Pensions and Investments online publication.
Williams didn't return a call from the Star-Tribune on Monday.
The Wyoming Retirement System administers retirement benefits for employees of nearly 700 public employers statewide. The membership currently totals nearly 42,000 active members, 23,000 retired members and approximately 20,510 inactive members.
The active membership is comprised of employees from school districts, the University of Wyoming and community colleges, state and local government and various other political subdivisions.
