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 individual financial planning advice, we encourage all of our members to take a proactive role in understanding their personal financial needs and preparing for their retirement.
NHRS has added a section to our website – “The Bigger Picture”
– that lists resources on retirement planning 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.
