NH Retirement System

  • The New Hampshire Retirement System (NHRS, the retirement system) was established in 1967 as a contributory, public employee defined benefit pension plan qualified under section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) and funded through a trust which is exempt from tax under Code section 501(a).  The plan provides lifetime pension benefits that are determined at retirement under formulas prescribed by law; the pension benefit is not based on investment returns or contributions.
  • The NHRS has created a section to give you the facts about the retirement system. A great place to find key topics you might hear about in the media — get the “straight talk” right from the System: Now You Know
