The retirement system provides a lifetime benefit to eligible members, however, the pension is only one component of a secure retirement. While the retirement system cannot provide advice about non-NHRS benefits, we have added a section to our website – “The Bigger Picture
” – that lists resources on retirement and overall financial literacy from governmental, non-profit, media, and public service entities. While the emphasis is on preparing for retirement, many of these links are relevant regardless of age. Among the topics covered are Social Security, supplemental retirement savings, health insurance/Medicare, protecting against scams, and resources for retirees.
Remember, your pension is only one component of a secure retirement.
