DRS Upgrade project

NHRS has embarked on a multi-year upgrade of its pension database product, known as PensionGold (PG). The upgrade from Version 2, which has been in operation since 2002, to Version 3 is expected to be completed in 2022.

The employer Data Reporting System (DRS) is a component of PensionGold, so this upgrade will eventually impact member, retiree, and insurance reporting by our participating employers, although we don’t expect this to occur for a few years. In recent years, we have surveyed employers about their use of the DRS and solicited suggestions for improving and streamlining the reporting processes; that feedback will be taken into account throughout the project.

NHRS has created this page to provide employers with periodic updates throughout the project. As we get farther along, we will provide updated technical information, instructional materials, and training to employers.
