CONCORD, NH – The New Hampshire Retirement System (NHRS, the retirement system) is offering “NHRS 101” presentations in February.

These sessions – not to be confused with the benefit information sessions regularly offered for members – will provide a broad, factual overview of the retirement system for NHRS members and retirees, municipal and school officials, lawmakers, the media, and the public.  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 those given to N.H. legislative committees in recent weeks.

Sessions have been scheduled for Wednesday, February 13, at 4:30 p.m., and Thursday, February 14, at 8:30 a.m. Both presentations will be at the retirement system’s office at 54 Regional Drive in Concord.

The presentations are expected to last approximately 60 to 75 minutes depending on the number of questions.  Seating is limited, so pre-registration is required.  To register, visit www.nhrs.org/meetings-events/ and find the presentation you wish to attend. Additional sessions may be added based on interest.

Please note, this is NOT a member benefits education session.  For more information on upcoming member education sessions, visit: www.nhrs.org/education
