A letter from the Executive Director: Last month, I shared with stakeholders our concerns with the trend of NHRS retirees returning to work in senior leadership positions on a “part-time” basis. I concluded my first letter with the following question: Is the current law working – does this make sense?

Opening a Dialogue About Working After Retirement

A letter from the Executive Director: There is an emerging trend involving some retirees and employers that bears watching. While it is not uncommon for some NHRS retirees to work part-time after retirement, we are seeing more and more highly paid individuals retiring from their full-time positions and returning to work "part-time" in the same position, or in similar positions with another employer. While some individual retirees and their employers are clearly benefiting from this practice, positions that were previously full-time, contributing NHRS positions are eliminated and the revenue coming in from both the member and the employer is lost.
