NHRS is in the process of upgrading to a newer version of our pension administration software. We will begin the transition to the new platform in October and our plan is to be completely on the new software by December. This transition should be invisible to most members and retirees, but during the changeover period, members and retirees can expect delays in some processes and transactions. If you are planning to retire this fall, your retirement date will not be impacted.

When the Legislature made significant changes to NHRS statutes in 2011, benefit eligibility, pension calculations, and whether certain types of pay were reportable to NHRS have been dependent on a member’s vested date or hire date. When NHRS transitions to an updated pension administration system later this year, members will see a new way to describe which category they fall into. In the new system – including the My Account online portal – members will be shown as being in different “Tiers,” which is just a shorter way to describe their existing status.
