CONCORD, N.H. –The New Hampshire Retirement System (NHRS, the retirement system) has posted a narrated “NHRS 101” PowerPoint presentation on its website at www.nhrs.org.
“NHRS 101” is intended to serve as a broad, factual overview of the retirement system. Among the topics included are plan governance, membership data, investment policy, contribution rates, and a look at some of the challenges facing NHRS. The presentation is similar to ones that were given to N.H. legislative committees earlier this year.
