Live Presentations

Member Education

During this presentation, members of all ages and in various stages of their career will be provided with general information about NHRS benefits, including an overview of NHRS as a defined benefit plan; service, early, disability, and vested deferred retirement; pre-retirement and post-retirement death benefits; and other important aspects of NHRS benefits. Please note that personalized account information, pension estimates, and information about retiree health insurance are not offered during these sessions. Due to differences in the benefit structure, separate presentations are given for Group I (Employee and Teacher) and Group II (Police and Fire) members.
