Retiree employment during state of emergency

Apr 27, 2020
RSA 100-A:7-b states that the annual limitations on part-time employment “excludes any hours worked during an emergency,” which the statute defines, in part, as “any event declared by the governor”. Gov. Sununu declared a state of emergency in New Hampshire effective at 5:15 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020. As a result, any hours worked by NHRS retirees for a participating employer for the duration of this state of emergency will not count toward the annual limits on retiree work hours.

The Bigger Picture

NHRS 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. This section lists resources on retirement planning and overall financial literacy from governmental, non-profit, media, and public service entities. Check Out These Resources for Retirees
