As most employers are already aware, NHRS is in the midst of 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 2023.
The employer Data Reporting System (DRS) is a component of PensionGold, so this upgrade will impact member, retiree, and insurance reporting by our participating employers. While these changes are nearly two years away, we are already at work developing information and training for employers and payroll vendors to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
To help employers distinguish between upgrade-related communications and all other messaging from NHRS, we have created a project name and logo for this effort:
Look for the Operation Granite Wave logo on all upgrade-related information from the retirement system over the coming months and years.
